It is known that Aluminium is the third most copious element and the most abundant metal in the earth's crust. Moreover, it comprised of negligible global warming concerns in the past. Hence, the building industry brings into use 25 per cent of all the aluminium generated, and regardless of the suitability of aluminium, there are still some concerns for the reason that the Planners as well as the authorities vacillate to quickly accept aluminium as a building material, chiefly due to its high energy consumption throughout the production, thereby, resulting into higher initial outlay.
