Aug 19, 2015 | The 2015 European Aluminium Congress (EAC) will be held on 23 and 24 November. High-level representatives from the international aluminum industry, politicians and scientists will all gather for the conference, which takes place every two years in Düsseldorf. In line with this year’s motto, “Aluminium – Building the Future”, they will discuss future trends as well as challenges facing the aluminum industry. “Aluminum has exceptional material properties, which make it the ideal basic material for Industry 4.0. The pace of innovation in the sector is still extremely rapid,” says Dr. Martin Iffert, CEO of TRIMET Aluminium SE. Iffert will participate in a high-ranking panel discussion held on the first day of the conference.
The EAC is organized by GDA Gesamtverband der Aluminiumindustrie e.V. in cooperation with the Swiss aluminum association alu.ch and the Austrian Economic Chamber. “In recent years, the EAC has established itself as an important industry forum and provided valuable momentum. We are looking forward to exciting discussions on the future of aluminum with international experts from the worlds of industry, politics and science,” says Iffert.
