This report surveys the production and use of aluminum and its occurrence in solid waste; the aspects related to resource recovery are emphasized. Surveyed are both the primary and secondary aluminum industries, which produce aluminum from virgin materials (i.e., bauxite) and scrap, respectively. Supply and demand analysis is used to analyze fluctuations in scrap prices and implications of increased recovery of aluminum from solid waste.
