    It takes a lot of energy to create aluminium from bauxit

    It takes 200 500 years to break down Aluminum naturally

    Animals can accidentally eat and cut themselves on the aluminum

  • REUSE and RECYCLE Where we found bauxit in the world

    Bauxit transports to Iceland to get melt into aluminium. Then the metal will be exported to for example Sweden

  • Its an easy metal to transport, so it doesnt require that much fuel! A part of aluminum can be recycled an infinite amount of times If you recycle aluminum, you only use 5% of the energy to create new aluminum

    Aluminium : Environmental problems

  • Products of aluminium Examples what its

    used for: Tealights, Lamps, cans etc
