In the global quest for a cleaner and greener lifestyle for humankind, aluminium is fast emerging as the preferred metal for a sustainability-conscious world. Aluminium is already the second most important metal in the world today, with the potential to become the most important commercial metal in the near future. From bauxite mining, which is sustainable, to the metal’s infinite recyclability, ‘green metal’ aluminium has a crucial role to play in India’s growth and socio-economic development. We integrate smart innovation, best-in-class technology, environmental safeguards, and sustainability-focused operating procedures to create value for the nation.
