CONSTELLIUM Packaging and Automotive Rolled Products, Voreppe, France
The aluminium industry is facing the fascinating challenge of automotive light-weighting, driven by the worldwide evolution of environmental regulations. Challenges include extending production capacities of auto body sheets as well as geographical footprint, and developing an appropriate portfolio of light-weighting affordable new alloys and solutions, all this with sustainability in mind. This paper describes how Constellium, as one of the European leaders in advanced aluminium based solutions for the transport market, is addressing all these challenges in its strategic, operational and sustainability agendas.
