Chapter 6 concludes this work with a summary and critical evaluation of the developed approach. Based on this critical review, fields of action for further research can be identified. Chapter 2 Aluminium Die Casting and Its Environmental Aspects Against the scope and objectives of the planned research work, this chapter provides the necessary theoretical background about hierarchically organized ­ industrial value chains, the aluminium die casting process, the connected chain of upstream and downstream processes and the resulting challenges for energy as well as resource intensity of die casted products.

The conglomeration of these precipitated compounds is usually known as red mud and needs to be landfilled. When the aluminate brine cools down and seed crystals are added the pure aluminium hydroxide precipitates (Kammer 2012a; Dienhart 2003). In a second step the extracted aluminium hydroxide gets dehydrated (calcinated) by adding thermal energy via rotary furnaces at a temperature level of 1000–1300 °C. 1 Industrial Value Chains and Aluminium Die Casting 25 This process creates technically pure aluminium oxide with only negligible contaminations of other oxides (Kammer 2012a; Dienhart 2003).

10 Basic structure of the hierarchical aluminium die casting value chain (process sequence and alloy mass flow) (see also Heinemann et al. 2012) cross company value chain is described through a brief overview over alloy transportation scenarios. The delivered ingots are transformed into final products by the internal process chain of the foundry. It also incorporates the die casting process itself, which has been classified before. This process gets further described from a technical perspective as closing point to this section.
