The European Aluminium Association (EAA) was founded in 1981 and represents the aluminium industry in Europe. It encompasses primary aluminium producers, downstream manufacturers, producers of recycled aluminium and national aluminium associations representing the manufacturers of rolled and extruded products in 18 European countries. Other associations, that are the Organisation of European Aluminium Remelters and Refiners (OEA) and the European Aluminium Foil Association (EAFA) are also members of the EAA.
Through environmental and technical expertise, economic and statistical analysis, scientific research, education and sharing of best practices, public affairs and communication activities, it aims to promote aluminium’s contribution to sustainable development whilst maintaining and improving the image of the industry, of the material and of its applications.
What is the EAA objective?
The overall objective of the EAA is to actively engage with EU decision-makers and the wider policy community to promote the outstanding properties of aluminium and optimise the contribution our metal can make to meeting Europe’s sustainability challenges. To reach this objective the EAA is active in the fields of:
- Issue monitoring and issue management on topics of common interest;
- Generic promotion and communication on aluminium;
- Collection, maintenance and dissemination of European aluminium statistics;
- Encouraging and initiating studies or research projects and technical co-operation in all relevant areas whether of a scientific, technological, economic, governmental, sociological, legal or any other nature.
