With more than a century’s experience in aluminium production and processing, Québec has developed unparalleled expertise. Over the years, an impressive network of research, development and training centres has developed, which has rallied university research groups, liaison centres, college centres for the transfer of technology, private and government laboratories and a workforce sectoral committee.
Québec’s expertise in aluminium is world renowned, in large part because of its impressive network of research centres, which also provides services to the benefit of customers and investors.
With their great vitality and creativity, research centres occupy a key place in Québec's aluminium sector. That’s why AluQuébec established a documentation, development and promotion centre for aluminium. The Centre d’expertise sur l’aluminium (CeAl) has collated a list of partners, collaborators and research centres that all have aluminium production or processing expertise:
The CeAl has also established a very detailed expertise matrix
