Aluminium is an essential metal to everyday life, and crucial for the transition of energy and transportation towards a lower carbon future. Modern life could not exist without aluminium in our buildings, cars, trains, planes, phones, food containers, cooking utensils, electricity infrastructure, televisions and household appliances.
