ALFED partners with AL Circle to spotlight the UK Aluminium Industry - The Aluminium Federation

Quote from ALFED CEO, Tom Jones: 

“ALFED members know, and I’ve said it before many times, aluminium is absolutely key to change for the future. Alongside other key industries, we can help combat the global climate crisis and drive forward the transition to Net Zero. In recent years, sustainability has become a global imperative and naturally it formed a key part of ALFED’s 2023 sustainability strategy day. Aluminium holds a key strategic position in supporting the sustainability agenda and with almost 75% of all aluminium ever produced still in use today, it’s no surprise that its recyclability is an important property. The use of secondary aluminium not only reduces waste, but also significantly reduces energy expenditure during the manufacturing process.   

This new collaboration with AL Circle puts ALFED in a great position, as the voice of the UK aluminium industry, to present a wealth of information, as we collaborate on a comprehensive publication on the challenges and opportunities within the UK aluminium downstream industry. The forthcoming publication will provide an insightful analysis of the UK’s aluminium downstream sector, shedding light on key trends, emerging opportunities, and critical challenges that shape its landscape. By leveraging AL Circle’s expansive network and expertise in the aluminium domain, we aim to present a holistic view of the UK aluminium industry to a global audience”.
