Alumina 2018 – 11th AQW International Conference, Gladstone, Australia

Alumina 2018, which is organised by the Alumina Quality Workshop (AQW), takes place at the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre (GECC) in Queensland, Australia, on the 9 – 14 September 2018. 

The event is expected to attract 300 industry producers and suppliers to the city from all over the world and it will feature 3 days of conference presentations and social functions, a day for industry tours followed by an industry workshop.

The Alumina Quality Workshop began in 1988 as a forum to bring the world’s alumina producers and their customers together to exchange ideas and information around a common goal of improved product quality.  The symposia have been held in Australia at an interval of three years.  Over time, the workshop has evolved into a major international symposium, incorporating all aspects of the production of alumina from bauxite.  In recognition of this evolution we have rebranded the conference name Alumina 2018.

The conference offers a unique opportunity to hear about the latest developments in alumina production and to network with other alumina producers, researchers and suppliers. The conference theme Efficiency for the Future reflects the current industry focus on cost reduction, optimisation of raw materials & energy use and the adoption of new technology. This continual drive for improved efficiency will ultimately result in a sustained and thriving alumina industry for the future.
