  • European Aluminium | Home Page » World Grill and Barbecue Championship 2011 And the winner comes from Austria
    from Austria The World Grill and Barbecue Champion 2011 is Christoph Gollenz Together with his team Goli Chef Partie from Austria he convinced the expert judges at the 2011 World BBQ Championship which was sponsored by the European Aluminium Foil Association EAFA and held last weekend in Gronau in Germany In excess of 100 000 visitors enjoyed watching the professional teams display their skills at the grill across the full range of BBQ disciplines For all the teams aluminium foil was an essential part of creative barbecuing and practical preparation of the various barbecue dishes The 73 teams from all over the world used over 52 km of household foil supplied by Hydro and ITS Foil and were pleased with the excellent quality helping them to use less meters than usual Also the meals for the judges were exclusively served in alufoil trays and containers supplied by Bachmann Aluminium Throughout the event the household foil and the foil containers were collected for recycling to ensure that the aluminium stays in the aluminium material loop The European Aluminium Foil Association is the international body representing companies engaged in the rolling and rewinding of alufoil and in the manufacture of alufoil containers

    been possible with the help of this discovery made 125 years ago which enabled the production and the use of aluminium on an industrial scale The smelting process to produce aluminium was discovered almost simultaneously but independently in 1886 by Charles Martin Hall in the United States and Louis Toussaint Hroult in France Both men dissolved aluminium oxide in molten cryolite and then extracted the aluminium by electrolysis Today thousands of products can be made safer lighter more energy efficient and fully recyclable thanks to aluminium from cars trains or aircraft to cookware packaging and electrical conductors Almost three quarters of all aluminium ever manufactured 700 million tonnes is still in use thanks to its long life cycle 10 to 20 years in transport and up to 50 to 80 years in buildings and excellent recyclability Aluminium can be recycled infinitely without loss of quality and has impressive recycling rates over 90 in transport and building applications and more than 55 in packaging with some countries exceeding 90 for beverage cans Also aluminium recycling saves up to 95 of the energy used in the primary production No material other than aluminium can combine the advantages of being light and strong totally recyclable resistant to corrosion completely impermeable and an excellent conductor of heat and electricity In the 125 years since this discovery the variety of applications for aluminium has grown apace and will continue to contribute to sustainable development and energy efficiency gains in Europe declared Patrick de Schrynmakers Secretary General of the European Aluminium Association EAA which has just released the third edition of its sustainable development indicators SDIs report This latest iteration of the SDI exercise includes for the first time indicators covering the use of aluminium in key applications in addition to more than thirty sustainable development

  • European Aluminium | Home Page » White Paper acknowledges lightweighting as a main driver for sustainable transport
    March 2011 The European Aluminium Association EAA welcomes todays call for lighter and more efficient vehicles in the Commissions White Paper on Transport and strongly supports the promotion of light weighting as part of the EUs strategy towards more sustainable transport by 2020 Lighter vehicles are key to reducing CO 2 emissions and improving passenger safety said Patrick de Schrynmakers EAAs Secretary General Reducing the weight of vehicles by using aluminium is the most straightforward way to reach one of the essential objectives of the White Paper namely more sustainable transport Aluminium can significantly lower the total weight of a vehicle The total weight can be reduced up to one third and car bodies alone by 40 thereby drastically lowering CO 2 emissions The challenge is now to effectively transpose the light weighting principle in tomorrows legislation continued Patrick de Schrynmakers So far decision makers have focused on improving the efficiency of engines to reduce emissions We are confident however that they will soon fully recognise the importance of other existing solutions such as lightweighting to make cars more energy efficient Aluminium also has unique energy absorbing characteristics which help reduce impact in case of an accident Improving the passive safety of vehicle is a crucial aspect of achieving another essential objective of the White Paper safer transport In recent years the focus has been very much on developing intelligent systems to increase safety Mr de Schrynmakers concluded Now however we cannot lose the focus on the passive safety of a vehicle It is of paramount importance to continue to improve technology in order to reduce the severity and consequences of accidents This can be achieved through the increased use of aluminium in todays vehicles About European Aluminium Association The European Aluminium Association founded in 1981 represents the European aluminium

    from using lightweighting as a means to reduce CO2 emissions from vehicles according to the European Aluminium Association EAA Instead the adopted Regulation allows heavier vehicles to emit more CO2 The EAA regrets this missed opportunity said Patrick de Schrynmakers EAAs Secretary General Reducing weight by using aluminium is one of the easiest and most cost effective measures to lower emissions from vehicles It is readily available and is already used by most car manufacturers It does not compromise on strength and is actually safer for all road users However impressive lightweighting potential remains untapped as a maximized use of aluminium could cut total vehicle weight by one third and car bodies alone by 40 thereby drastically reducing subsequent CO2 emissions Unfortunately the current mass based calculation method which allows for higher emissions for heavier vehicles and is supported by EU regulators discriminates against light weight technologies The EAA supports a regulation that would not be based on the mass and be technology neutral The current system gives vehicle manufacturers the green light to produce more polluting and heavier vehicles concluded Mr de Schrynmakers The European Aluminium Association will continue to push for the adoption of a technology neutral parameter
