Driving sustainable aluminium

The SALEMA project has combined the strategies of decreasing the use of critical raw materials and creating a sustainable economy in the aluminium manufacturing industry of Europe. The electric automotive sector needs high-performance, sustainable aluminium sources, which is only possible by generating a new aluminium ecosystem.

Circular economy model

16 Partners from six countries united to create brand new, sustainable and high-performance aluminium alloys, and demonstrate their suitability in automotive applications.

SALEMA developed and put into practice a circular economy model that integrates scrap aluminium materials into the process of manufacturing aluminium 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 is demonstrating the new circular economy model on 5 car parts in 4 pilots in Europe.
