Aluminium foil is a very thin leaf of metal aluminium - not an aluminium metal compound.

I do not know what do you mean by converting of foil in to metal when its already in form. If you want to know how waste aluminium foil can be converted in to some other form, I would say, melt it in a furnace and cast it in to desired shape.
