Driving sustainable aluminium
The SALEMA project is a combined strategy of decreasing the critical raw material dependency (from magnesium and silicon) and creating a sustainable economy in the aluminium manufacturing industry of Europe. The electric automotive sector needs high-performance, sustainable aluminium sources, that is only possible by the generation of a new aluminium ecosystem.
Circular economy model
16 Partners from six countries united to create brand new, high-performance aluminium alloys and demonstrate their suitability in automotive applications.
SALEMA will implement a circular economy model to reintegrate scrap aluminium materials into the primary aluminium manufacturing process of car parts. This circular economy will lead to a more sustainable industry and less dependence on imports from outside the EU.
Solutions developed in the project
SALEMA will demonstrate the new circular economy model on 5 car parts in 4 pilots in Europe.
