USA / India – The US-headquartered Aluminum Association has agreed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Aluminium Association of India with the objective of boosting recycling of the metal. The signing took place at a ceremony held at the Hyderabad International Convention Centre in India.
The two bodies have agreed to exchange information on reuse programmes in transportation, packaging, and the building and construction markets, and have also outlined plans to reinforce information exchange on end-use demand in the same sectors, as well as data gathering techniques to improve timeliness and accuracy of reports. Additional co-operation will occur in the area of health and safety benchmarking – again involving the swapping of information on programmes to promote, and improve on, best practices.
Heidi Brock, President of the Aluminum Association, comments: ‘Through greater sharing of industry data and information, we will be helping promote and support both industries in the US and India.’
