Aluminium tombstones
Aluminium is at the miners' side to accompany them in their last step


Workers in bauxite (main precursor of aluminium) mines are often exposed to heavy machinery, noise, dust and high tropical temperatures. It goes without saying that this work comes with certain health hazards such as heavy injuries, cancer and a variety of lung problems. One day all miners will die eventually. It will then be hard to tell, whether they would have lived longer, if they would have had another job. After all we will all die one day. Anyway, dead miners need tombstones (at least those that choose to be buried). Secondary aluminium would be the perfect material therefore.

What makes your product bold and innovative?

It closes the circle of the value creation chain. While the miners have accompanied the aluminium in its first steps, the aluminium is at their side to accompany them in their last step.

Which target group is this product aimed at?

Workers in bauxite mines.

Why is secondary aluminum the perfect material for your idea?

The idea here is to give something back to those that for years now have been at heart of the aluminium production. What could possibly be more fitting then paying them their last respects with secondary aluminium?
