15th International Aluminium Recycling Congress

26-27 February 2019
Hotel L’Europe, Colmar, France

Launched in 1990 and organised by European Aluminium, the International Aluminium Recycling Congress is one of the leading aluminium recycling events today. The 15th edition of the Congress was held 26-27 February 2019 in Colmar, France and focused on recycling in a new circular economy landscape.

The jam-packed programme covered topics such as trends in technology and sustainability, scrap shipment market opportunities and challenges, circular economy policy design and innovations in recycling technology. The Congress brought together a record number of over 160 participants including policy makers, decision makers of the aluminium recycling industry, processing companies, media representatives, and experts from across the globe.

Aside from the keynote speeches and panel debates, delegate could also explore the exhibition area, enjoy a welcome cocktail and dinner at the Cité de l’Automobile automobile museum and take a field trip to Constellium’s aluminium plant in Neuf-Brisach.
