However, most of the electricity now used in primary smelting in the Western world is generated by hydroelectricity—a renewable energy source. The recycling of aluminium is economically, as well as environmentally, desirable, as the process uses only 5% of the electricity required to produce a similar quantity of primary aluminium. Aluminium recycled from scrap currently accounts for about 40% of the total aluminium supply in the USA and for about 30% of Western European consumption. With the added impetus of environmental concerns, considerable growth world-wide in the recycling of used beverage cans (UBC) was forecast for the 1990s.

Venezuela’s aluminium industry achieved rapid growth in the 1980s, as a result of the availability of raw materials and cheap hydroelectric power. Aluminium production, based on imported alumina, subsequently overtook iron ore to become Venezuela’s main export industry after petroleum. The exploitation of bauxite reserves of 500m. 0m. tons of high-grade ore annually from mines in Bolivar State when output reached full capacity in 1992, by which time Venezuelan aluminium plants were to be supplied solely with local bauxite.
