As the world's leading trade fair and platform for the aluminium industry, we will soon be launching a series of interviews in several parts, dedicated to the current focal points, challenges, possibilities and opportunities of the industry. First and foremost, the series will deal with the transformation and technology of the present and the future – since aluminium can play a decisive role in the transformation of Europe, and even the world, towards a sustainable future!
In addition to buzzwords such as Industry 4.0 and digitalisation, the industry is particularly concerned with the green transition and the path to an industry that is as sustainable as possible. And this change is more important today than ever before. High energy prices and scarce resources are a burden for many, and the energy crisis is currently causing problems for several companies. Just like the crisis, the transformation of the aluminium sector affects all application industries worldwide and needs even more attention. The implementation is characterised by challenges and difficulties, but also by extensive opportunities and possibilities. Advanced techniques and technology can help drive the transformation. But stakeholder collaboration is also an important issue for a strong and competitive aluminium industry.
