The U.S. Aluminum Extruders Coalition and the United Steelworkers (USW) union filed petitions charging that unfairly traded imports of aluminum extrusions from numerous countries materially injuring the American aluminum extrusions industry.
The Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) has decided to postpone the ET’20 Aluminum Technology Seminar. The decision was made due to the Covid-19 outbreak. “We recently have been informed that a significant number of ET’20 attendees, speakers and exhibitors are prevented from travelling to the Event due to travel bans imposed by their employers and countries,” said AEC, the organizer of the ET’20. In addition, President Donald Trump acted to ban incoming European travellers.
Hydro’s primary aluminium range with low CO 2 footprint, Reduxa, has just been released to the extrusion market. Stern Wintergarten, a producer of winter and summer gardens, patio covers and sun protection in Germany, is one of the first customers to fully switch to the low-carbon alternative.
