Aluminium International Today was invited to attend the EN+ Group pre-COP26 reception and private view of the ‘Between Forest and Skies’ pavilion at the Victoria and Albert Museum on the evening of 13th October.

The pavilion is made from infinitely recyclable aluminium with the world’s lowest carbon footprint, produced using the En+ Group’s ground breaking inert anode technology.

It will be packed up and presented at COP26 in Glasgow, before being recycled for further use.

Lord Baker of Battle welcomed more than 100 guests in the spectacular surroundings of the V&A Museum and said:

"If we’re going to take aluminium and really transform it into a zero carbon metal, it is going to require extraordinary creativity."

“It is also going to require miraculous innovation and the brightest minds from across a whole range of disciplines, which is why we are so pleased to collaborate with the V&A and these amazing designers and why we are so happy to take this to Glasgow as a flag bearer, for what is possible in the future.”

Helen Clarkson, CEO, the Climate Group also commented on the amazing piece of work and said: “It is really inspiring to all of us and with the world’s attention finally shifting to clean energy, the use of metal is only going to increase, which is why we can’t wait for the energy transition to be done to start tackling this problem.“
