Roland Scharf-Bergmann, Head of Recycling in Hydro's Primary Metal business, has been elected chairman of the Recycling Division of European Aluminium by the organisation’s General Assembly.

European Aluminium represents the interests of the entire value chain of the aluminium industry in Europe. It works to promote aluminium, especially with European Union decision-makers and other important stakeholders. The Recycling Division is responsible for market and policy monitoring of recycling activities.

“It is a great honour to be elected the third time to chair European Aluminium’s Recycling Division that comes with the dissolution of OEA – Organisation of the European Aluminium recycling industry – and its full integration into European Aluminium,” Scharf-Bergmann says.

“The main focus for the future will be on supporting European Aluminium and EU Commission work on ‘Circular Economy,’ waste-related topics, trade and other issues to illustrate the sustainability of aluminium and promote the aluminium industry.”
