AIT January/February 2014
A New Year signifies change and we have taken that on board here at Quartz Business Media with a new editor.
Matthew Moggridge has moved onto Steel Times International, while Nadine Firth joins Aluminium International Today from Glass International.
You shouldn’t notice too many changes inside the magazine, but we are always interested to hear what changes you would like to see, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.
This issue starts as we mean to go on and is full of articles that highlight the current trends in the international aluminium industry and the latest innovation and developments. With a large focus on recycling, Nadine Firth spoke with Marco Palmieri, Senior Vice President and President, Novelis North America, about the current state of the industry, the products driving demand and the plans in place for the company to reach its recycling goal of 80% by 2020.
Carrying on this theme, a feature on sustainability looks at what aluminium can learn from other sectors. The full version of this article can be found here.
Other features include: Mining and refining, primary, rolling and extrusion. There is also a detailed feature that focuses on the transport and handling of aluminium, with case studies from Combilift and KEOPS.
