In the new short documentary, DTE showcases how its technology is revolutionizing the aluminum industry by eliminating the manual sampling process and providing producers and manufacturers of metals the tools to optimize processes and production and ensure they minimize carbon emissions.

DTE was featured in the documentary series “Innovation and Disruption Leaders.” It is a genuinely inspiring series produced by TBD Media Group and broadcast by CBS News.

At the heart of DTE’s breakthrough innovation is its real-time elemental analysis technology, an industry-first advancement that promises to revolutionize the whole metals industry. Commenting on its applications, Derek Prichett, Senior VP of Corporate Development of Novelis, the world’s largest recycler of aluminum and one of DTE’s investors and clients, said: “The main improvements that we expect to see by implementing DTE’s technology are safety, by keeping operators away from furnaces and molten metal and out of harm’s way, quality, by ensuring that our compositions in furnaces are maintained on specification thanks to real-time analytics and an increase in our recycling potential, by knowing how much scrap metal to include in our batches.”Commenting on the new docuseries launch, Karl Ágúst Matthíasson, CEO of DTE, said: “Being part of ‘Innovation and Disruption Leaders is an incredible honor for DTE. We are proud to be recognized for our commitment to pushing the boundaries of the metals industry.

This series will provide a platform to showcase our team’s dedication and the transformative solutions we offer. Our vision is for the DTE technology to track product composition and quality in all metal segments in all metal segments in the global metals industry and that this will truly be a revolutionizing factor in optimizing decision-making, optimizing quality, and minimizing any waste in this huge industry.”
