AluSolutions, 10-11 May, ADNEC, Abu Dhabi
AluSolutions is a free-to-attend international exhibition and conference addressing the challenges and opportunities of sustainable aluminium use. AluSolutions will demonstrate how the aluminium industry is making continuous improvements in the environmental efficiency of producing aluminium, as well as its sustainability benefits in end-use applications.
Maintaining a sustainable aluminium industry
While the primary process of aluminium production is energy-intensive, the industry has recently been promoting aluminium’s use-phase benefits as outweighing these environmental disadvantages.
Alongside this ‘new look’ for aluminium, recent environmental legislations mean that the primary industry is monitoring the impacts of bauxite mining, how it reduces emissions, saves energy and affects the local environment.
While further downstream, as the demand for aluminium grows, rolling companies, extrusion companies and casthouses are recycling aluminium to use it over and over again in a closed loop system.
The sustainability benefits of aluminium also continue into the end-use phase. In automotive and aerospace applications for example, lightweight technology has led to a reduction in CO2 emissions, while packaging made from increasing amounts of recycled aluminium is driving a closed-loop circular economy.
AluSolutions will explore technology and challenges in the following areas:
- Reducing energy and greenhouse gases
- Waste management
- Biodiversity and land management
- Resource efficiency and recycling
- Scrap recovery
- Aluminium end-use environmental benefits
- Diversification of downstream
AluSolutions offers you a content-rich environment and international networking opportunity where you can spend time with the primary influencers and decision-makers within the industry. It is also the ideal opportunity to use the free-to-attend conference as a platform to talk about the innovations you are making as a business and to show-case the work you have done with your clients.
The conference theme will be “The Sustainability Story”
It will provide a platform to discuss the sustainability challenges faced when manufacturing and processing aluminium, as well as a look at the environmental benefits of end-use aluminium products.
