Aluminum is a key part of the nation's manufacturing base, generating hundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs, driving innovation and increasing energy efficiency in many markets. The Aluminum Association works hard every day to advocate on behalf of the $71 billion industry. But we need your help to make sure policymakers and regulators understand the critical issues that impact our ability to operate.
The Aluminum Association hosted a breakfast event with members of the bipartisan Congressional Aluminum Caucus and members of the Association's Government Affairs and Environmental Committees in Washington, D.C.
The aluminum can is a package built for the circular economy. A used beverage can (UBC) serves as a “technical nutrient” as it is returned to the material stream as feedstock at the end of its useful life. Aluminum cans are recycled over and over again in a closed loop process. Aluminum is also by far the most valuable material in the recycling bin on a per ton basis.
The Aluminum Association donated the original copy of the teal sheets to the Smithsonian Institution. Casthouse Safety Workshop in June. SAPA’s Chizmar Named AWMI Member of the Year. Aluminum Industry Featured in Bloomberg Sustainable Energy Factbook. And more.
