Düs­sel­dorf, 25.07.2023

On 17 July, the Weiqiao Alu­mini­um Pro­cessing Indus­tri­al Park in the city of Wei­hai in China’s Shan­dong Province was inaug­ur­ated as part of the con­fer­ence to devel­op envir­on­ment­ally friendly and high-qual­ity alu­mini­um pro­cessing. At the same time, the cooper­a­tion between sci­ence and tech­no­logy was reaf­firmed with the inaug­ur­a­tion of the Weiqiao Nation­al Sci­ence and Tech­no­logy (WQ & UCAS) Joint Labor­at­ory Wei­hai Base.

The Weiqiao Pion­eer­ing Group, which cov­ers the entire life cycle from min­ing of baux­ite to products and recyc­ling, and provides value cre­ation through­out the life cycle of alu­mini­um, has driv­en the indus­tri­al cluster in Wei­hai city and is loc­ally act­ive in alu­mini­um pro­cessing. For the Weiqiao (Wei­hai) Alu­mini­um Deep Pro­cessing Indus­tri­al Park, the Group has cooper­ated intens­ively with the city of Wei­hai and the Shan­dong Alu­mini­um Industry Asso­ci­ation in recent years. The park cov­ers an area of 713 hec­tares with a planned invest­ment volume of 3 bil­lion yuan (approx. € 375 mil­lion) and aims to integ­rate upstream and down­stream com­pan­ies related to the alu­mini­um pro­cessing industry.

A stra­tegic cooper­a­tion has been estab­lished with the Insti­tute of Metals of the Chinese Academy of Sci­ences to solve the main tech­no­lo­gic­al chal­lenges in the field of alu­mini­um pro­cessing. Togeth­er, the alu­mini­um industry cluster will be expan­ded and strengthened, and Weiqiao Indus­tri­al Park will become a new engine for the envir­on­ment­ally friendly and high-qual­ity devel­op­ment of the alu­mini­um industry in Weihai.

Loc­al politi­cians, sci­ent­ists and entre­pren­eurs pressed the start but­ton togeth­er for the open­ing of the indus­tri­al park.
