This graphic does a good job of representing the global aluminium cycles. The different stages use are clearly labelled at the top and the activities are neatly placed underneath. Icons are used to indicate a stock or flow of materials and colors to differentiate the flows. Abbreviation is needed to keep the graphic simple, and the sidebar explains what each means.
