Research by the Institute for Energy and the Environment (IFEU) in Heidelberg, Germany, has shown that cars made of aluminum can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fuel, and in London, the International Aluminum Institute (IAI) has come to the same conclusion.
In 2011, about 1.4 tons of carbon dioxide emissions were caused by the use of aluminum in the manufacture of automobiles, and 60 billion liters of crude oil could be saved during the use of these vehicles. This information was revealed by IAI experts at the China Aluminum and Transportation Conference held in China, Dalian, and China. By extension, the IFEU study shows that if all vehicles (including cars, trucks, railway locomotives, ships and aircraft) were due to aluminum and reduced weight, annual emissions of greenhouse gas emissions could be reduced by 6.6 tons, equivalent to About 9% of the global transportation industry.
The IAI experts suggest that this conclusion is based on IFEU research data and the use of a long-term model of aluminum industry development that takes into account greenhouse gas emissions from aluminum production, vehicle use and disposal.
