AMAP Excursion to Trimet Aluminium Essen

On Wednesday November 5th 2014 the first AMAP excursion to one of our partner companies took place. A group of of 20 poeple in total got an insight of the electrolysis process for the production of primary aluminium. The picture shows an opened electrolytic cell which is one of 360 cells in operation.

Addtionally, the group got an in-depth look at the aluminium process chain up until the foundary process.

At this point we would like to express our appriciation to Trimet Aluminium SE for giving us the opportunity to visit the production site.
