Mario Conserva states that the ongoing dialogue between Russian and European aluminium associations is essential for successful cooperation in the industrial and technological fields. Nowadays, we see a growing demand for aluminium due to its unique properties, making this lightweight metal indispensable for the 'green economy' — from the construction to the automotive industry. The International Aluminium Institute (IAI), for example, predicts that aluminium consumption will rise by 80% from the current 95 to 170 mtpy by 2050.
Mario Conserva also highlighted the Russian aluminium industry's success in achieving carbon neutrality, underpinned by the introduction of breakthrough technologies such as inert anode and others.
'Russia is a major player in the international economy, feeding various industrial sectors around the world with low-carbon footprint metal and thus contributing to decarbonisation on a global scale,' believes Mario Conserva.
Mario Conserva congratulated his Russian colleagues on their anniversary and wished them years of successful work.
