INALUM collaborates with MIT Energy Initiative to advance low-carbon energy technologies
October 12, 2018
Indonesia’s state-owned holding company PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminium (Persero), also known as INALUM, is joining the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) as a member company to support research that advances development of low-carbon energy technologies and explore ways to reduce the company’s carbon footprint through MITEI’s Low-Carbon Energy Center for Materials in Energy and Extreme Environments.
The center is one of seven Low-Carbon Energy Centers that MITEI has established as part of the Institute’s Plan for Action on Climate Change, which calls for strategic engagement with industry, government, and other stakeholders to solve the pressing challenges of decarbonizing the energy sector and meeting global energy demand with advanced technologies.
“By joining MITEI as a member, INALUM will be making valuable contributions to the MIT low-carbon energy research community through its support for faculty and student projects,” says Robert C. Armstrong, director of MITEI and the Chevron Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT. “Our scientists and engineers look forward to collaborating on solutions to energy and climate challenges our world faces today and tomorrow.”
