First Fridays with Phil: Novelis’ new Global Research & Technology Center – a new birthplace for innovation

On June 15, I was thrilled to help open our brand new Novelis Global Research & Technology Center in Kennesaw, Georgia, just north of our headquarters in Atlanta. At this facility, we have brought together some of our brightest minds and best R&D and engineering capabilities to run the hub of our global research and technology operations.

At the new center, our scientists and engineers will tackle projects that will change the future of the aluminum industry. We will develop new products, working with customers to respond to their needs, and we will also focus on improving our manufacturing system to process more scrap and achieve 80 percent recycled content by 2020.

Take a look at the video for a glimpse into the building and the grand opening.
