A significant demand in the use of aluminium alloys, most especially in the automobile industries, has been recorded over the past few decades. This is due to light-weight properties of aluminium alloys which when considered in many industries has a significant increase on the fuel efficiency economy of automobiles. The sustainable production of aluminium from recycling of scraps helps in better energy efficiency, cost effectiveness and reducing carbon footprints. Scraps for recycling can easily be obtained through the post-consumers and post- Manufacturers. 100% compatibility of the feedstock from these scraps has been a major challenge in the automotive industry. It is very difficult to get alloys which have compatibility of 100% substitution rate. This study compares and predicts using JMatPro the thermo-physical and mechanical properties of these alloys after mixing and the aftermath effects on their service life.
