More than 50 craft breweries across the U.S. are showing their support for sustainable brewing and packaging by signing Ceres’ Brewery Climate Declaration to help combat climate change.

Climate change is impacting the brewing industry in unique ways, and breweries are increasingly seeking to reduce their environmental impact. Recently, over 50 breweries from across the U.S. joined the Brewery Climate Declaration, calling for other business leaders, policymakers, and the public to take action on climate change.  These leading breweries are using innovative solutions to cut their carbon footprints, including by opting for sustainable packaging, like Novelis’ evercanTM, and they’re saving money at the same time.

FIRST Robotics: The Journey of Walton High School – Webisode 1

As the official provider of aluminum for FIRST™ Robotics Competition kits around the world, Novelis supports the young scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians that will one day help us solve some of the world’s greatest challenges.

The Walton Robotics team at Walton High School near our hometown of Atlanta, Georgia is one of the many FIRST Robotics teams around the world that Novelis employees work with directly as mentors, helping the team build their robot and advance through the competition process.

Last year, the Walton Robotics team came a long way in competition, and this year, they’re stronger than ever before. In this video, the team reflects on the experiences and lessons they learned in 2014. Now, they’ve got their eye on the 2015 FIRST World Championship in St. Louis, April 22-25.

Tune in to the Walton Robotics webisode series on the Novelis Blog over the next few weeks as we follow the team through the 2015 competition process and cheer them on at the World Championship in late April!

Novelis ranks as TAG Top 40 Innovative Technology Company

I have exciting news to share – Novelis has been named a TAG Top 40 Innovative Technology Company for 2015. This honor, given by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), ranks Novelis among the most elite innovators and leading technology companies headquartered in the state. Regardless of market or industry, Top 40 companies all have two important traits in common – their innovations have 1) proven societal and financial impact, and 2) national and global reach.

Novelis earned its spot on the list for our latest alloy innovation for automotive aluminum, the Novelis AdvanzTM s615 alloy, which was first commercially implemented in the all-new, aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford F-150. Developed to meet Ford’s demanding 6HS2 specification but designed for a wide range of commercial applications, the Advanz s615 alloy had to be both extremely formable for high volume vehicle part stamping and assembly and extremely strong to meet demanding new standards for toughness and durability.  This new alloy provides twice as much toughness as conventional automotive alloys, uniquely combining strength, toughness and formability like never before.

See this alloy innovation in action in the 2015 Ford F-150 Torture Test video…
