•    Description:  During the last 25 years the primary aluminum industry has made great progress toward making its production process less hazardous and more energy efficient. In particular, the significant reduction of the perfluorocarbon (PFC) gases emitted during anode effects in electrolysis cells is one of the success stories of the primary aluminum industry. However, a main environmental problem still remains: the carbon footprint. This article presents an overview of the situation and discuss the possibilities for reduction of the GHG emissions from aluminum production. Main topics include: the overall carbon footprint from aluminum production, the impact of CO2 emissions from fossil fuel-based electricity, carbon consumption in electrolysis cells, reduction of CO2 emissions from electrolysis cells by improving anode quality, inert anodes, and low-carbon or green aluminum.
