Abstract Scope Anode technology has always been a major part of the Light Metals symposia at the TMS Annual Meeting. While there have been many groundbreaking papers over the last fifty years, the biggest challenge today is how to support the transition to low carbon technology. The International Aluminium Institute (IAI) has estimated that the total emissions from the smelting process was greater than 850 Mt CO2e in 2018. The Light Metals anode papers from the last 50 years have been revisited to identify those that may help with the transition to lower carbon emissions. Major opportunities to be explored are alternative raw materials and inert anodes, reducing carbon consumption in the electrolysis cells, reducing voltage drop through the anode assembly and reducing process CO2 from anode production.
