Thuestad was present at the opening panel of the event, discussing alongside other main topics such as the growth in demand for aluminum, the influence of the Chinese market and best practices to reduce the environmental footprint.
"This event is a global reference for the market and will be an excellent opportunity to reinforce our transparency and present all the improvements and investments of our B&A operations in Brazil," Thuestad analyzes.
John Thuestad also participated in an interview with journalist Andrea Hotter of Metal Bulletin on the challenges faced by the situation in Barcarena after the heavy rains of February 2018. He spoke about Alunorte's investments, strengthening relations with communities and increased safety and operational robustness of the refinery.
The conference runs until tomorrow, 27, discussing topics such as trading trends and prices, growing markets and panels on sustainability initiatives and green mining efforts.
