The global forum on sustainability in the aluminium industry
The aluminium industry is committed to promoting the sustainable benefits of aluminium. We all know it is lightweight, strong and infinitely recycable, but what efforts are going into creating a sustainable working environment when it comes to the production and processing of this miracle metal? This was the aim of the AluSolutions conference - to provide a platform to look at recent technological advances and increased environmental awareness, so that alumiinum made today is more sustainable than ever.
The environmental theme was clear with the green colour scheme that ran throughout the exhibition and conference. More than 500 visitors from 28 countries across the international aluminium indsutry walked the green carpet and a green ribbon was even cut in the opening ceremony. Quartz Business Media were honoured to welcome Senaat's ACEO, H.E Eng, Jamal Al Dhaheri, who inaugerated the event and led the opening ceremony. He welcome the event to the region and highlighted the growing aluminium industry in the Gulf.
Alongside this, the AluSolutions exhibition provided visitors with the opportunity to view sustainable aluminium technologies in action and spend time with primary influencers and decision makers. Exhibitors included TALEX, GULFEX, ABB, Elkem Carbon AG, Gillepsie & Power Inc, Hyster, Cast Aluminium Industries, Engitec Group and Magneco/Metrel. There were also displays from Ford and Jaguar Land Rover, which both showcased aluminium in all its automotive glory.
Thank you to everyone who participated or visited this year's AluSolutions. We hope to return in the future, with more sustainability challenges and technology to present as aluminium works towards a greener future.
