The consumption of fossil fuels and the amount of emissions in the process of aluminum recycling can be reduced by the application of solar thermal technologies. A process concept for the solar thermal recycling of aluminum waste material was developed. The process takes place in a rotary kiln heated by concentrated solar radiation. A lab-scale rotary kiln was developed and tested for melting and recycling of aluminum waste at the high flux solar furnace of the German Aerospace Center. Design and construction features as well as the first test results on melting of aluminum charges will be presented. The design concept for an upscaling of the rotary kiln to a pilot scale operated on a solar tower will be discussed.
