1st ICSOBA Aluminium Electrolysis Course

For the first time in ICSOBA history, the 1st ICSOBA Aluminium Electrolysis Course was organised with the aim to increase participants’ comprehensive understanding of the electrolysis process and give an overview of the state-of- the-art of aluminium production. The course was held at the Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek Heights in Dubai from 1 to 3 November 2023 and was attended by 120 participants from 14 countries.

The course provided a unique opportunity to learn from experts in the field about the electrolysis process, both theoretical and practical aspects.

A survey was conducted at the end of the course and 46% of the participants rated the overall experience as very good and 42% as good. In the survey we received many suggestions and feedback. Some of the comments were:

  • “It was one of the best courses I have attended”.
  • “What I like most was the vast knowledge of the instructors.”
  • “Very good and informative with real life examples. Presentations well-structured and understandable. Also, examples of models and their applications in industry.”
  • “I really enjoyed the workshop exercise – practical and hands-on knowledge.”
  • “Overall, the experience was really good and useful for sure.”
