At our company, we have a strong belief in the sustainability and versatility of light metals like aluminum and magnesium. These materials have the ability to significantly reduce weight in a variety of applications, making them highly valuable in today’s market. Since 2006, we have been promoting the use of aluminum and magnesium in China, where per capita consumption of aluminum has increased from 2 kg in 2000 to 25 kg in 2020. In our opinion, aluminum and magnesium are essential to modern life and are among the most sustainable metals available.

Facts about China’s Light Metal Industry:

  1. China accounts for 51% of world alumina Production, 55% aluminium production, 50% Semis Products and nearly 90% of world magnesium production.
  2. Most of these productions are from coal and coal-fired power, China is facing ever-increasing pressure to reduce CO2 emission, thus looking for better technologies to meet the promised goal of carbon peak by 2030 and carbon neutral by 2050.
  3. Chinese light metal producers are looking for new technologies to reduce their energy consumption, carbon emission and to combat environmental pollution.

The year 2023 marks a new era for the Light Metals Industry: climate change is a fact and we believe wider and more applications of light metals will make a good contribution in our fight against climate change. With in-depth insight and biggest networks in the light metal industry in China and Canadian operations, Sunlight Metal now has its unique advantage to bring new technologies to the light metal industry, to make this world a better place.
