Abstract Scope Recycling is a sustainability aspect that ensures green environment as well as energy and cost reduction. Sustainability and reduced energy consumption requirements demand that AlSi alloys are recycled by remelting. Al-Si cast alloys industries are increasing, leading to more consumption of these alloys that in turn leads to more scrap. Unfortunately, when cast Al-Si alloys are recycled, extraneous microstructures combined with reduction in the mechanical properties occur. In this research, the microstructure of recycled Al-Si alloys produced by centrifugal casting using different parameters was studied. The changed parameters are the centrifugal rpm and scrap material mix. The microstructure of the recycled cast Al-Si alloys was observed to improve by centrifugal casting, resulting a graded microstructure from inner to outer surface of the casting. The centrifugal separation is shown to be a promising method for controlling the Fe-rich enormous structures and the porosity present in the recycled Al-Si alloys.
