The Global Aluminium Cycle

This web resource provides you with robust aluminium stocks and flows visualizations for use in presentations, teaching toolkits and policy documents.

Via interactive features, you can preselect regional cycles with corresponding bar charts for additional data information and analyse historic (last half century) and pre-defined future scenarios up to 2040.

We are currently working on a release which will feature comprehensive data download options (including scrap generation and trade data), for example for creating your own flow charts or to evaluate the potential of aluminium recycling.

Developed by the International Aluminium Institute (IAI), this resource was built on a century of aluminium industry data supported by many regional aluminium associations and almost two decades of our material flow analysis (MFA) modelling.
