Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Aluminum Cans Material Extraction ore is roasted in furnace (550-650 degrees) smelted (heated untilaluminum reacts to free the tin of impurities electric, reverberatory or blast furnaces) Manufacturing and Comercialization compacted into slabs of aluminum slabs lubricatedwith oil cupping press machine cuts out circular shape and makes small cup like structures- leftovers recycled shallow cups stretched to make taller cups to ensure equal can width and length thetops of the cans are sliced off put through a washing and drying cycle can spins in printer where the label is spun on labels baked on the inside of the can is sprayed with a substance that keeps the metal from reacting with the contents of the can spray baked on top of the can, "the lip" is made by applying pressure to the top of the can machine imprints thebottom to create the dome like bottom cans tested for leaks and then sent to soda and refreshment companies lids made separately and sent to company, coated with spray so liquid does not interact with the metal. Aluminum ore(Bauxite) is reacted with water and hydroxide it is then heated in a furnace, to create a material that can be used in Aluminum cans. Al2O3 +2NaOh+ 3H20<-->2Na(OH)4 The solid is then cooled and precipitated, and heated once again. It is then placed in a vat of chemically created cryoitle. From this process the Aluminum is extracted from the oxygen ions. It is then in a usable material to be made into cans Post Life After the aluminum is made into cans and used there are three options for the aluminum, to be recycled to be combusted, to be put in a landfill. Recycle- material disposed of in recycling baskets are retrieved. They are melted down and made free of impurities and transported to can factories to be made into more cans. Combustion- The cans disposed of in recycling bins are retrieved and moved to a combustion center. Here the Alumium cans are reacted with oxygen and then they are able to extract the pure aluminum. Landfill- the cans not disposed of in recycling bins end up in massive landfills:( There are major aluminum deposits in Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Russia, western Africa and the Caribbean Islands
