The production of one metric ton of aluminum from bauxite requires about 17000KWh of electricity while the same amount of recycled aluminum consumes approximately 750 KWh which substitutes primary aluminum with a gain of 95 % energy [3].
The mass of a single aluminum can is nearly 14 g, but a huge number of such cans are produced each year, using a large amount of the metal.
Many investigators have addressed several aspects of the recycling process of aluminum cans and drosses [4-6].
This investigation explains a simple route to recycle aluminum from aluminum cans.
"Our goal is to provide reliable information as basis for local, regional and international investments and as support for the aluminum industry's stakeholders," added Tarek Ali, show manager, Aluminum Dubai, Reed Exhibitions.

"As 100 kg (220 lbs.) of aluminum on a car can reduce C[O.sub.2] emissions per kilometer by 9 grams (0.3 ounces), aluminum as material for light-weighting cars has a clear advantage," said a press release issued by the European researchers.
Unlike the wildly volatile copper market or the stratospheric rise of nickel, aluminum scrap markets have shown promising signs, but there are also potential concerns.
According to recent figures from the Aluminum Association, based in Washington, the aluminum extrusions market has been the hardest hit, with some orders declining by as much as 30 percent.
As for other market observers, some say the aluminum market could move from a deficit situation into balance this year, which could indicate a more moderate market in 2007.
