What is an Aluminium?

Aluminium is a chemical element; it has the symbol Al and the atomic number 13. Aluminium has a density lower than that of other common metals, about one-third that of steel.

It has a great affinity towards oxygen, forming a protective layer of oxide on the surface when exposed to air.

Does South Africa produce aluminium?

Primary aluminium is produced at the Hillside Aluminium smelter in KwaZulu-Natal. Secondary aluminium is produced by several companies across the country, such as Hulamin and Wispeco.

The South African value chain is highly carbon intensive due to its dependency on fossil fuels, such as coal-powered electricity.
