SGL Group - The Carbon Company and HYDRO, one of
the world's leading alumina and aluminum producers, entered into a technical
collaboration in order to tackle energy-saving potentials in the primary
aluminum production process. SGL Group will contribute with its innovative
cathodic products. Cathodes, which are used to conduct the electrical current
required for the electrolysis of alumina into aluminum, are an integral part of
the aluminum production process. Building on each other's technological strengths,
energy savings in aluminum production should be realized faster.
