The past two decades, China's economy to go is a \, development is not sustainable. China's aluminum resources industry is of great significance for the development of the national economy as a strategic industry, on the one hand, but on the other hand, major issues facing poor resource reserves, huge energy consumption and serious environmental pollution. Material flow analysis to the development of the ecological perspective of industry, it flows through the substance of the measure of industrial economic system, storage and flow out of the analysis of the sustainability of industrial development that the impact of human activities on the environment enter the economic system depends primarily on natural resources the quality and output of the physical economic system of waste material quality. If you enter the greater the possibility of growing the substance of the economic system, the output economic system more and more waste, economic development towards weak sustainability or unsustainability. Substance flow analysis, there are two main ways: First, the total material flow analysis, the industrial economy as a system, to study the system interface exchange of material flow from the macro; second is the specific material flow analysis, tracking aluminum resources into the various stages of its life cycle, the various stages of material flow exchange. Comprehensive application of the two methods can be more comprehensive analysis of the sustainability of industrial development and the reasons. In this paper, the total material flow analysis industrial material flow accounts of aluminum resources industry accounts indicators, calculated, and comparison with the United States; specific material flow analysis to map out the the aluminum resources industry in China metabolic map current ecological pressure caused by input-output method analysis on various influencing factors to carry out in-depth analysis. Derived by analyzing the current development of China's aluminum resource industries ecological pressure unprecedentedly large, inefficient use of resources, energy consumption into a major eco-burden, by the development of the existing model unsustainable. Two important reasons is caused by the current situation of the industry sources consumption structure and trade structure. Draw on the resources industry experience of the developed countries, aluminum, aluminum resources industry development direction. The article strengthen aluminum scrap imports in the the consumer source structure, should be short-term, consumption and recycling of packaging aluminum policy be tilted; should be controlled in the trade structure, electrolytic aluminum production, to encourage downstream products exports, while speeding foreign the factories process to guarantee the supply of aluminum.
