November/December 2014

Going green

Contrary to what a famous little frog once sang, it would seem the aluminium industry is making ‘being green’ look easy.

Novelis recently stole the limelight (no green pun intended) with the opening of the largest aluminium recycling plant in Germany. The facility aims to give the company the flexibility to process a range of scrap types, creating a more efficient closed-loop recycling system and increasing Europe’s domestic scrap consumption.

Novelis has also joined forces with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to help reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. Something little green frogs everywhere will hopefully benefit from.

Not wanting to miss out on the action, you will have noticed in our last issue that Quartz Business Media has announced an event to address sustainability challenges in the aluminium industry.

AluSolutions 2015 will be held on 21st - 22nd October in Toronto, Canada and we are now calling for papers for the conference and exhibition space is already being reserved. You can find out more by visiting www.alusolutions.com.

This issue is the last of 2014 and hopefully ends on a high! As usual, we have a selection of international industry updates, along with detailed articles on furnaces/heat treatment, which look at how to tame your industrial furnace and annealing lines for automotive aluminium components. There is also a feature on ultrasonic assisted continuous casthouse technology, as well as a look at new technologies in modern remelting plants.

All of this, along with the Furnaces International Buyers’ Guide 2015, makes for a packed issue.

If you’d like to receive our media guide for 2015, which outlines why Aluminium International Today is the leading advertising choice in the industry, then contact nadinefirth@quartzltd.com

The media pack also contains a list of our editorial features. If you are interested in submitting an article, please get in touch.

See you next year!
