We're back with the second post on the history of the wonder metal - Aluminium. Thanks for coming back. Let's roll forward on our journey and check out the important milestones that shaped our history. Read our first post in this series here . 1886: The electrolytic process of extracting aluminium used today in some smelters was invented by two scientists – Charles Martin Hall and Paul Louis-Toussaint Héroult . The former was a French scientist and the later, an American chemist. The duo invented and even patented this process at the same time while working independently. The scientific world gave recognition to both by calling this the Hall-Héroult Process of aluminium extraction. We’d totally watch a movie made on this! The Hall - Héroult duo 1888: Charles Hall and his partners founded a smelter in Kensington, Pennsylvania, which extracted aluminium using the process invented by Hall himself. Initially, the company churned out 22.5kgs of metal per day
There's much more to the mere word 'Aluminium'. It has been called The Metal of The Future, a metal which finds its place in every aspect of the world we are building today. Take a peek into the of Aluminium, every day, enriching a billion lives.
