Project goal
The goal is to capture the balance of the aluminum-houshold of the licensed aluminum in Austria, to explain the fate of  8,000 - 9,000 t of licensed but not recycled aluminum packages. The starting point is an analysis of the entire aluminum household of Austria, which  is subdivided in its central areas. This includes the aluminum production and -processing, consumption of aluminum products and the collection of aluminum and the proportion of aluminum in the waste. In a further step the proportion of the licensed aluminum will be detached from the entire aluminum household.
