Aluminium is used in building and architecture for various reasons:
Note also that metallic aluminium in "massive" form will not burn. Further, its relatively low melting point (660 °C) means it will "vent" early during a severe fire, releasing heat and thereby saving lives and property. Construction and demolition waste products represent a growing challenge for modern industrial societies. The depositing or incineration of most types of materials can lead to air, water and soil pollution. This is not the case for aluminium, which even if inadvertently dispersed in the environment does not have harmful side-effects. Therefore, aluminium recycling not only has important economic implications but also contributes to environmental protection. A study has demonstrated that about 95% of aluminium building products are recycled at their end-of-life thanks to the high value of the aluminium scrap.
