Sustainability: Plain sailing?

Welcome to this special ‘Sustainability’ digital issue of Aluminium International Today.

This year has already seen the aluminium industry take great strides towards a cleaner, greener, metal. So much so, that the ELYSIS Project could even see the production process of aluminium becoming emission-free in the next five years...

This is a massive step not only for aluminium manufacturers, but heavy industry in general and it is brilliant to see our sector leading the way in developing sustainable technologies.

I am always interested to see what articles are submitted for these special issues, as it gives me an overview of the trends and technologies currently in the spotlight. It seems recycling is still a main driver towards creating a sustainable supply chain and there is a dedicated focus on aluminium cans and the impact of recycling cans in the US that use non-aluminium labels.

There is also a very interesting update from the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative, which highlights their on-going work and new certifications across the value chain.

I hope you enjoy the issue!
