About UsOur product

Aluminium is one of the world’s most useful metals. It is long lasting, versatile and used across a range of everyday needs, from transport and construction, to packaging and electronics. Aluminium is commonly used to make drink cans, car parts, boats, sporting equipment, building materials and door frames. Aluminium is light-weight, rust-resistant, and can be easily recycled.

Aluminium is made from alumina, which is refined down from bauxite. It takes four tonnes of bauxite to make two tonnes of alumina, which then makes one tonne of aluminium.

There are three stages in the production of aluminium: exploration and mining, refining, and smelting.

At BSL, we are responsible for the third stage of aluminium production - smelting.
