Latest issue: March/April 23
With the last few years very much in ‘survival mode’, the recent developments and announcements from a number of primary aluminium producers shows a significant shift in how the industry is looking ahead.
This issue includes a selection of articles, all centred around where the most development is being applied - within digital manufacturing, furnace technologies and the green energy transition.
In an exclusive article by Tim Murray, the discussion of what really constitutes green energy is raised and where will this energy needed for such a transition really come from.
