INDUSTRIAL SECTORS & Climate - Not: tourism & hospitality -- But reduce CO2 at sectors: materials (25%), manufacturing and construction

INDUSTRIAL SECTORS & Climate - Not: tourism & hospitality -- But reduce CO2 at sectors: materials (25%), manufacturing and construction

The latter is MUCH bigger, so Phantom says
"leave tourism alone, focus on materials" - see below

o Buildings and infrastructure, 51%
o Mechanical equipment, 15%
o Automotive, 12%
o Metal products, 11%
(4 critical few - why no 'plastic cars'?) ===
o Other transport, 5%
o Domestic appliances, 3%
o Electrical equipment, 3%

b) alu

The major uses for aluminium metal are in:[142]

Transportation (automobiles, aircraft, trucks, railway cars, marine vessels, bicycles, spacecraft, etc.). Aluminium is used because of its low density;
Packaging (cans, foil, frame etc.). Aluminium is used because it is non-toxic (see below), non-adsorptive, and splinter-proof;
Building and construction (windows, doors, siding, building wire, sheathing, roofing, etc.). Since steel is cheaper, aluminium is used when lightness, corrosion resistance, or engineering features are important;
Electricity-related uses (conductor alloys, motors, and generators, transformers, capacitors, etc.). Aluminium is used because it is relatively cheap, highly conductive, has adequate mechanical strength and low density, and resists corrosion;
A wide range of household items, from cooking utensils to furniture. Low density, good appearance, ease of fabrication, and durability are the key factors of aluminium usage;
Machinery and equipment (processing equipment, pipes, tools). Aluminium is used because of its corrosion resistance, non-pyrophoricity, and mechanical strength.
