Energy Efficiency in Aluminum Facilities

Purpose of Education

In today's world, engineers and economists have two main problems on their agenda:

  • Raw material and energy constraints

  • Global climate change


Although the aluminum industry is closely affected by these two problems, unlike other materials, it also has the potential to be part of the solution to these problems.


Planned training;

  • Aluminum-energy relationship

  • Aluminum production methods and energy requirements in this processes


Energy-environment relation in aluminum production processes Energy and Exergy Concepts Energy efficiency in melting, holding, alloying and refining processes

It is aimed to share practical and the oretical information on reducing waste heat generation and evaluation of generated waste heat.


Thus , the concept of energy efficiency is intended for participants look at their
 own operating conditions together with the perspective of a general aluminum-energy relationship.

Targets of Training

All participants at the end of this training;

  • Why aluminum metal is precious metal,

  • Theory of heat treatments with energy and exergy concepts

  • Methods of achieving energy efficiency,

  • Understand the relationship between energy efficiency and process cost as a “whole” and analyze the process.
