‘The Aluchemie project symbolises the core values for which we as Dura Vermeer stand. Through collaboration, expertise and involvement, we give this location a sustainable future,’ adds Melis.

The work is expected to start in October 2023. The operation should be completed by mid-2025. A small team of Aluchemie employees will continue to work to manage the dismantling in collaboration with Dura Vermeer.
