Aluminium Villages
relocated villagers get modern badass aluminium huts


The extraction and processing of bauxite (main precursor of aluminium) demands a lot of land and energy. In some cases huge dams are build, specifically to produce power for the aluminium-smelters. Naturally this sometimes conflicts with populations and settlements. The obvious course of actions in those cases is of a course a relocation of those populations. As a trade-off to their loss, entire villages made of secondary aluminium could be build for them in more convenient locations.

What makes your product bold and innovative?

It is a classic win-win situation. The aluminium industry gets easy access to the land they need, while the relocated villagers get modern badass aluminium huts in return.

Which target group is this product aimed at?

The relocated population in mining areas

Why is secondary aluminum the perfect material for your idea?

During the bauxite mining, the construction of dams, the aluminium production and the relocation of populations that goes with it, aluminium is the ultimate goal and outcome. Thus, this same product in recycled form would be the perfect solution to some minor production inherent issues, such as population displacement.
