Aluminium Agreement

In his speech Thursday in Ohio, Trump said U.S. tariffs on Canada were necessary to defend the domestic aluminum industry because northern producers broke their commitment to end the flooding of the U.S. market with a cheaper product. Aluminium and alumina sector: environmental agreement “This agreement strengthens the long-standing partnership between Constellium and Airbus and demonstrates Constellium`s leadership role in the advanced aluminum products and solutions market,” said Jean-Marc Germain, CEO of Constellium. We look forward to working with Airbus to strengthen our relationship through our extensive development, manufacturing, supply chain and recycling capabilities. The Government of Canada has conducted a federal, provincial and territorial consensus process, with stakeholder input to lead the development of the LIER. For the aluminium and alumina sectors, quantitative BLIERs for TPM, PAK and SO2 and quality BLIERs for PM2.5 and SO2 have been developed. On Thursday, a 10% tariff was imposed on imports of “undytened crude aluminum from Canada.” Constellium will continue to provide its proprietary Aluminum-lithium Alloy Airware solutions, a proven technology that offers a combination of unique strength and weight properties. As part of the agreement, Airbus will provide a wide range of advanced aluminum rolling and extrusion products, including wing skin plates, fuselage plates and rectangular and prefabricated plates for structuring components.

U.S. tariffs: Steel and aluminum taxes that were imposed on important allies, Canada was exempted from tariffs in 2019 “on the basis of an agreement to keep imports of steel and aluminum products from Canada at historic levels.” Potroom electrolysis: aluminium production by electrolysis of alumina dissolved in a cryolith bath. Anodes and cathodes allow the passage of electrical currents into the electrolytic bath containing alumina and break the aluminum-oxygen bond. All companies submitted their 2018 annual report before the notification deadline. All reports were verified by the ECCC and showed that all companies met and met their SO2, TPM, PM2.5 and PAH emission targets for 2018 (see tables below). The PM2.5 working group was established and is comprised of industry, the Aluminium Association of Canada, the provinces and representatives of the ECCC.
