The demand for aluminium is changing and increasing rapidly due primarily to electrification and changes in the automotive industry. The predicted increase in need has put minerals for aluminium refining onto the Critical Raw Materials list. The importance of aluminium and a resilient supply chain is now under consideration, and the use of Nordic minerals is discussed in the webinar. In conjunction with the massive demand increase, climate change's impact must be managed. Primary aluminium has a large carbon footprint, and research and pilot plants are being designed for inert electrodes. This is being reviewed in the webinar.

Similarly, aluminium is a highly recyclable material, and even though recycling has a much lower carbon footprint, the whole issue with melting and recycling has the potential to be decarbonised. In addition to decarbonising, actions are possible to capture the carbon dioxide emitted close to its source. These topics are covered in the webinar.

Date: May 7, 2024

Time: 10:00-11:00 (+ 30 min Panel discussion and networking)

After attending this webinar you will know more about:

  • Alternative sources for resilient aluminium production
  • The state of the area for zero-carbon footprint primary aluminium production from alumina
  • Decarbonising melting and recycling
  • Challenges and opportunities for carbon capture

Target audience: Designer and supplier manager of aluminium component industries. End user of aluminium components. Everyone with an interest in aluminium industry.
