IAI responds to Hydro-UFPA agreement on sustainable research on bauxite residue

Commenting on the agreement between Hydro and UNFPA, Miles Prosser, Secretary General of the International Aluminium Institute (IAI), welcomed the partnership noting that:

“Finding new uses for by-products from aluminium production is an important part of meeting’s society’s expectations on our industry. If aluminium by-products can also deliver environmental benefits in another industry, such as cement, then we are making great progress towards a sustainable circular economy. Hydro has been actively engaged in IAI’s work in increasing the use of bauxite residue in cement and concrete products and so this development is welcome news.”
