    UNITED KINGDOM, 2017/09/16 British multinational car company Jaguar Land Rover Limited announced a new project for reusing recycled aluminium in new car production before this week. The program, known as REALITY, is the next step in JLR’s ongoing strategy of harvesting aluminium from end-of-life cars and reintegrating it in new vehicles. The £2-million (US$2.62 million) project builds upon its existing REALCAR project, which the firm says yielded in over 75 thousand metric tons of aluminium scrap being reintegrated in new JLR units. Begun in 2008, REALCAR, which is spearheaded by Jaguar Land Rover, is a collaboration of several firms to develop a “closed-loop vehicle production model” that utilizes recycled aluminium. JLR has invested £13 million (US$17 million) in the project thus far, which it says will yield substantial benefits both to the environment and the firm’s bottom line, as utilizing recycled aluminium consumes as much as 95 % less energy than smelting primary aluminium from bauxite ore.
