ELYSIS

A new era for the aluminum industry

There’s a new, revolutionary way to make aluminum. It eliminates all direct greenhouse gases. And it produces pure oxygen.

Unprecedented aluminum partnership

Unprecedented aluminum partnership

Our name refers to the process at the center of our industry, the electrolysis of alumina. It’s a tribute to our history, but it suggests a fundamental change, an evolution.

Global aluminium industry leaders Alcoa and Rio Tinto have the support from the government of Canada and the provincial government of Quebec and Apple to scale up this proven technology for retrofits at existing smelters or the design of new facilities.

Carbon-free smelting

Aluminum has always been the leading choice for sustainable product development due to its light-weight, strength and infinite recyclability. This technology takes the miracle metal’s sustainable advantage to a new level. All direct greenhouse gas emissions are eliminated, replaced with pure oxygen.

In Canada, the technology could eliminate the equivalent of 6.5 million metric tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, if fully implemented at existing aluminum smelters in that country. That represents an amount roughly equal to taking 1.8 million light-duty vehicles off the road.

The technology can create more aluminum in the same size smelting cell as the traditional process. And it can be installed in new facilities or retrofitted for existing ones.
