The world economy is suffering heavily from the financial crisis. The metal prices have fallen dramatically within a very short period. Car manufacturers, by far the largest users of aluminium casting alloys, are cutting their production. What does this mean for the recycling of aluminium in Europe? What are the future short, mid and long term perspectives? What is the impact of the European environmental legislation on recycling? Are there new technical innovations to improve the competitiveness of the Aluminium Recycling Industry?
These and a lot of other interesting and important items are on the agenda of the 10th OEA International Aluminium Recycling Congress at the Hilton Hotel in Berlin on 2 and 3 March 2009. Particularly in periods of economic downturn the meeting with colleagues, suppliers and customers can be helpful. OEA offers the ideal chance to exchange views and to find out what is going on in the market and to explore the chances for an improvement.
