Die Cast

What are the environmental impacts of Die casting metal?

im doing A level Design and technology and i would like to know what the environmental impacts are of die casting.. i cant find anything on the web so if anyone knows anything please give me as much info as poss :) thanks

I don't have any details but here are a few generalities of which I am convinced.
The impact is always dependent on the volume of activity.
The heating of the metal consumes energy and almost all energy today comes from combustion someplace.(yes there are exceptions)
My brother performs metal casting in his jewelry business. Because he is not manufacturing very much he does not cause much impact on the environment. Because he has windmills on the roof of his building which pump more energy into the grid than he uses, he feels he has significantly reduced his impact on the environment.
