With permission. Obsolete aluminum products that are not recycled are landfilled, lost, or dissipated. A dissipative use of aluminum is one that destroys its value as a potentially recyclable material. The best example is the use of aluminum as a deoxidant in molten steel. Low-grade aluminum scrap added to the steel reacts with dissolved oxygen, resulting in deoxidized steel and aluminum oxide dissolved in the slag. The value of the steel is increased, but the value of the aluminum is destroyed.

Most aluminum-containing wires are collected from industrial sources: wire manufacturers, telephone companies, power and utility companies, and scrap dealers sorting building debris (Muchová and Eder, 2010). The growing amount of electronic scrap generated by economically advanced societies points to another potential source of recycled aluminum. 7% (Muchová and Eder, 2010). Processes have been developed for recovering an aluminum concentrate as one of the products of circuit-board recycling. However, the relative value of the aluminum in a PCB is minimal compared with that of several other materials in the PCB, and as a result, actual aluminum recovery is small.
