TMS 2009 Annual Meeting & Exhibition Features Leaders from the Aluminum Industry

10.02.2009
Issues related to the economy, energy, and sustainability will be discussed by aluminum industry leaders during a special program of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) 138th Annual Meeting & Exhibition. The 2009 Aluminum Plenary Session will be presented at the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting & Exhibition (February 15–19, 2009) in San Francisco, California.

An outstanding panel of speakers has been organized to review the current economic situation with a comparison to the past and recessions in the metals industry.

The session will consider issues related to the growth of aluminum production, communicate the vision for corporate social responsibility, and reinforce the positive contributions of the aluminum industry to value creation for society.

TMS is extremely pleased to welcome the following speakers to the TMS 2009 Annual Meeting & Exhibition:

• Dave Persampieri, vice president, Charles River Associates, “What Now for Aluminum? The Current Crisis in Perspective and Observations on the Future”

• Dick Evans, chief executive officer, Rio Tinto Alcan, “Aluminum: Four Decades Looking Back and One Decade Looking Forward”

• Jan Arve Haugan, senior vice president of Technology and Part Owned Smelters, Hydro, “Hydro’s Agenda 2010: Technology Focus while Navigating in the Storm”

• Bill O’Rourke, vice president of Sustainability & EHS, Alcoa, “Alcoa’s Sustainability Journey”

The Aluminum Plenary Session will take place in room 2001/2003 on the second floor of the Moscone West Convention Center, Monday, February 15, 2009, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:10 p.m.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
