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 lead 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
