Aluminium Play Better Than Steel for Automobiles Application

Scientist recently implied that choose aluminium to apply in new automobile construction to improve fuel economy instead of steel turned out to be a effective way to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions.

A recent research study carried out by the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) proved that it is an efficient way to obtain the lowest total vehicle lifecycle environmental impact – cradle-to-grave – as compared to both traditional and advanced steels by reducing vehicle weight with aluminium.

“As the U.S. works to reduce dependence on foreign oil, promote clean energy and combat climate change, this report definitively documents why aluminum offers the most promise for cutting total automotive-related carbon emissions and energy use,” said ORNL’s Sujit Das, an expert on product lifecycle assessments.
