Next week: South Africa!

I’m overjoyed that I’ll be speaking about sustainability and anodizing at the International Aluminum Conference and Exhibition organized by @AFSA - Aluminum Federation of South Africa.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (sdgs) is a topic that has my increasing interest and passion.

Aluminum has - in comparison to other materials like copper, steel and wood - an almost unreasonable high carbon footprint.

But as I like to say: Not all aluminum is created equal.

There are plenty of things we can do - as anodizers, OEM’s, product managers, designers etc. - to make sure our aluminum parts are both more durable and friendlier to the environment.

If you’re at the conference - please let´s have a chat about sustainable anodized aluminum.
