Greener Aluminium: When Possibility Meets Reality

Aluminium is part of the solution for a greener global economy. However, the industry’s carbon footprint remains high – in China and the rest of the world. Solutions to this problem will take time and will require large capital investment.

During his presentation, Edgardo will give a high-level overview on the following topics:

  • Global targets
  • Challenges for the aluminium industry:
    • Power sources
    • Smelter technology
    • Value chain
    • Recycling
  • Market dislocation


Edgardo Gelsomino joined Wood Mackenzie in 2010. Over the past 25 years, he gained a wide experience covering the various stages of the aluminium value chain.

Before joining Wood Mackenzie Edgardo held positions at an aluminium producer and at two other recognised research organisations.

He has a degree in Economics from University of Buenos Aires.
