IAI welcomes Hindalco-UltraTech partnership

Following news that Hindalco has become the 1st first-ever company to achieve 100% red mud utilisation worldwide, Secretary General for the International Aluminium Institute (IAI), Miles Prosser, said:

“For successfully exploring new uses for Bauxite Residue in the cement industry, I’d like to congratulate IAI member Hindalco and UltraTech Cement for this fantastic achievement. 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. Hindalco has contributed immensely to our work on Bauxite Residue in cement production and we’re looking forward to learning from them and hope to replicate their success across the industry. Our long term goal is to find uses for the industry’s by-products to ensure the least possible environmental disruption.”
