The AFSA International Aluminium Conference and Exhibition in March 2016 forms part of the Aluminium Federation of South Africa’s overall strategic plan to positioning the South African aluminium industry in the short, medium and long term. The Conference is seen as a stepping-stone towards the vision of “Doubling Aluminium Demand”. It is aimed at industry, professionals and academics; allowing both industry presentations and academic papers as part of the conference programme.
The conference will enable networking, sharing information and engaging industry on the state of technology and competitiveness of the aluminium industry.
Aluminium used in transport reduces the weight, fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
The most important advantage of aluminium is its ease of formability.
Aluminium-intensive automobiles are practical as a cost-effective alternative for improving fuel economy.
Aluminium can be recycled again and again, saving about 95% of the energy required for primary production.
Aluminium resists corrosion by water and road salt, which makes it a material of choice when it comes to transport application.
