Well, your link states the obvious about recycling: Aluminium is terribly easy to recycle, and it saves a ton of energy and money. I don't know how this works in north america, but here in Europe aluminium waste is a common target for theft - because it is so valueable. This just does not compare to carbon at all, which is quasi-unrecycleable. Yes, in theory you can. But the product are short fibers, which are only usable as a filler for plastics. It's just waste - aluminium can, and to a large extend is, be fully recycled. And trust me, I've worked with CF - the whole process is nasty from front to back, not just the recycling part. The resin, the chemicals used for mold separation, CF sanding dust - all quite toxic or harmful to the environment.
