**** Special session just added to the agenda: UC Rusal Update: developments & implications for the global aluminium market ****
The US has sanctioned a number of Russian individuals and companies, including UC Rusal, in response to what the US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), in consultation with the Department of State, described as malign activity.
As the largest producer of primary aluminium outside of China, UC Rusal is a significant, low cost producer in the global aluminium market. In this session we will bring together aluminium market commentators to discuss short term implications for the market.
The session will take place on Wednesday 25th April 2018 from 08:10 - 09:00

CRU is delighted to announce details of the 23rd World Aluminium Conference which will take place from the 23-25 April at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, London,
The event provides concise insight on supply, demand, price, premiums, sustainability and costs for the benefit of a highly-influential audience from the global aluminium industry. The participation of these well-known executives and decision-makers from the primary, secondary, extruded, rolled products, end use, trading and financial sectors, create an environment conducive to networking.
The event will once again be held in London due to the high concentration of executives involved directly and indirectly in the aluminium sectors that find the location convenient.
Key themes the 2018 conference will explore:
• Primary aluminium - looming shortages, or long-term surplus?
• The renaissance of the US aluminium industry
• European aluminium industry - the phoenix from the ashes?
• Chinese strategy – to buy or build outside China?
• Shifting paradigms for carbon products
• The sustainability differentiator
• Electric vehicles – in demand
