News in Brief
Aluminium Industry Forum in August
The Light Metals Flagship is planning a two-day Aluminium Industry Forum in August. The event will highlight research capabilities in Australia and technological opportunities and challenges facing the industry. The event is targeted at managers from aluminium companies, the research sector, state and federal governments, and consultancies. For further information, email Mark.Cooksey@csiro.au
The Flagship website has a new look, as part of a move by CSIRO to bring its many different websites under one 'roof'. The new Light Metals Flagship website is now part of a bigger 'one-CSIRO' website. You can use the old web address www.lightmetals.csiro.au to get to the Light Metals Flagship section of the CSIRO site.

We recently updated many of our Light Metals Flagship project profiles on the web, including:
Processing lower-grade bauxites – Our
researchers are developing new technology to process lower-quality,
high-silica bauxite, which would open up significant new reserves to meet
the escalating demand for aluminium.
The following Light Metals Flagship projects feature in the forthcoming June edition of Process magazine, published quarterly by CSIRO Minerals:
