Decarbonising Aluminium: Technology & Costs

Aluminium is one of the world’s most widely used metals. It is also a major source of carbon emissions. As the industry faces growing pressure to decarbonise, BloombergNEF has analysed the technologies that can be used to produce zero-carbon aluminium.

We find that zero-carbon aluminium can be cheaper with certain technologies, but each pathway will encounter its unique challenges.
