Storytime: Beyond Brussels

In Beyond Brussels, our external newsletter, we highlight aluminium’s role in the wider society and feature the people and initiatives that are shaping the industry. Each edition focuses on a different topic: from mobility to aluminium packaging and the circular economy. Find out more about our industry’s many faces of collaboration, innovation, growth and sustainability through the stories below!

Storytime: Aluminium Packaging: Circular by Nature

Aluminium packaging plays a critical role in establishing a truly circular economy. Thanks to its characteristics as a permanent material, aluminium in packaging can be recycled endlessly without losing its properties. How can we maximise the re-use of aluminium packaging for new applications? Find out below!

Storytime: How aluminium contributes to decarbonising transport

Mobility affects each and every one of us, every day. But who are the people behind the cars, bikes, planes, scooters that make it possible to get from one place to another? And how can aluminium contribute to building a low carbon society? That is the subject of today's story.
