Aluminum Association policies for Biden administration
The Aluminum Association has laid out policy priorities for new Biden administration to help strengthen the domestic aluminium industry.
The document identified five key areas for the newly-inaugurated administration of President Joe Biden to focus on including; energy, environment, infrastructure, recycling and trade.
“We congratulate President Biden and look forward to working with him and his team in the coming months and years,” said Tom Dobbins, president & CEO of the Aluminum Association.
“During this challenging time for our nation, it is critically important that we all work together toward renewal and recovery. A strong and growing domestic aluminium industry can play a role in the American comeback story.”
In remarks at an aluminium plant in Manitowoc, WI, during the presidential election campaign, President Biden noted how aluminium is a key part of future infrastructure development and addressing climate change, saying “That means American aluminium for infrastructure, for developing more wind and solar and hydroelectric power, for electric vehicles that will replace cars in the federal fleet.”
Tom Dobbins added: “Among the many lessons of the past year is just how essential American manufacturing is to a strong and healthy country.
“We are ready to roll up our sleeves and do our part as aluminium producers, recyclers and fabricators. We look forward to working with policymakers to grow good-paying manufacturing jobs while building a more sustainable world.”
