Large amounts of aluminium end up as machining swarf disposed of in landfills, reducing the amount of aluminium used for the actual manufacturing, and increasing the cost of the final product, thus ultimately contributing to environmental pollution. Finding a way to remove the aluminium oxide layer that is formed in the surface of the swarf, is the main challenge faced during the recycling process of this material. This paper aims at presenting a short review of the challenges and the methods employed for swarf recycling.
