Aluminium smelters could see their future sealed off amid job cuts this month.
The Ministry of Defence is currently considering how it will tackle the rising cost of producing더킹카지노 aluminium for defence and the supply chain, the industry’s chief executive has said.
The MoD is examining whether aluminium is now becoming harder to find after a slump in the prices of production and trade.
Steve McNamara, a former chief executive of the Aerospace Industries Association, said demand has picked up.
But at the same time, he said: “I think it is now the last grea더킹카지노t opportunity to replace the loss of technology lost to this process. There are also economic considerations in favour of having another one of those two processes.”
Aluminium has fallen 16 per cent over the past four years, partly due to cheaper raw materials.
Aluminium smelters cur바카라rently employ 40,000 people.
