Center for a Sustainable Aluminum Industry (CSAI) Founded in Jan. 2005 Funded by a few sources: Sloan Foundation Industry Centers Program A consortium of Aluminum Producers The Commonwealth of Kentucky The University of Kentucky Have about $800,000 in subsidizing for exploration throughout the following three years. Workforce in Economics, Business and Engineering are individuals from CSAI

Slide 5

CSAI Research Areas Finding approaches to improve reusing rates is one of the significant center zones. The present venture will contemplate the aluminum reusing patterns in Fayette County, KY. Fayette County will be the first “recycling test lab” in the country. Consolidate “economic development” ideas into natural advantages to engage both “sandals and suits”.

Initiatives Underway Industry and Government Work with LFUCG, Baker Iron & Metals and Wise Alloys to track month to month aluminum can recuperation in Fayette County. Work with refreshment can merchants (Anheuser Busch, PepsiCo, Coca Cola, Clark Distributing Co.- Coors, Miller) to track number of aluminum jars sold in Fayette County. Track the genuine reusing rate in Fayette County.

Slide 11

Fayette County Public Schools and University Work with Fayette County Public School Systems to advance mindfulness and recyclability of aluminum jars. Work with University of Kentucky to upgrade the reusing rate among the 18-29 years of age demographics. Coordinating reusing messages into UK 101 classes. Find and build the quantities of reuse receptacles all through UK. Working with organizations and sororities to get them included in the reusing endeavors as a feature of their city obligations. Target extraordinary occasions, for example, football games as chance to gather jars.

Slide 12

Planned Path Forward LFUCG will subsidize a waste structure portrayal study in focused on ranges and demographics in Fayette County. Convey “national best practices” to the province. Use Fayette County as the nation’s first “recycling test laboratory”.

Slide 13

Recycling as an Economic Development Initiatives Kentucky has one of the biggest centralization of aluminum offices in the US. Reusing of aluminum drink can is pivotal in supporting Kentucky’s aluminum industry. The greater part of Kentucky’s aluminum offices depend on auxiliary (reused) aluminum. Expanding reusing rate will develop existing employments and bring lucrative, information based occupations and current aluminum plant
