RUSAL is a low cost, vertically integrated aluminium producer with core smelting operations located in Siberia, Russia. RUSAL remains among the largest producers of primary aluminium and alloys globally. In 2017, the company accounted for approximately 5.8% of global production of aluminium and 6.3% of alumina. RUSAL employs 62,000 people in 20 countries, across 5 continents.
RUSAL’s production chain includes bauxite and nepheline ore mines, alumina refineries, aluminium smelters and casting houses, foil mills, powder, packaging and wheels production centers.
RUSAL believes that the protection of the environment and limiting CO2 emissions are of fundamental importance. Currently, RUSAL has one of the lowest carbon footprints in the industry and benefits from access to clean, renewable hydro power in Siberia. The company sources over 95% of our smelters’ electricity needs from these hydro power plants.
In 2017, RUSAL launched its new bespoke brand for low carbon aluminium – ALLOW with a certified carbon footprint. ALLOW’s carbon footprint is below 4 tonnes of CO2 per tonne of aluminium. That is significantly lower than the industry average of 13.4 tonnes of CO2 per tonne of aluminium.
ALLOW will provide consumers and manufacturers with confidence that the aluminium from RUSAL used in their products has one of the lowest carbon footprints in the industry.
A major competitive advantage of RUSAL is its in-house R&D, engineering and design resources, which enables the Company to develop cutting-edge technologies, state-of-the-art equipment and technically advanced facilities. A new energy efficient and environmentally friendly RA-550 smelting technology has been launched and revolutionary inert anode technology is currently under design.
RUSAL has a diversified and innovative product mix with a strong share of value added products in the portfolio (47% share of VAP products in 2017 sales mix). In 2017, RUSAL created a new downstream division, whose main tasks will include developing value added production and bringing this business of the company to a completely new level.
RUSAL’s bauxite mines and alumina production facilities are located in Russia and abroad. RUSAL’s operations cover over 100% of the Company’s total alumina needs and our existing bauxite resource base can support over 100 years of further operation.
RUSAL’s focus on efficiency and cost reduction initiatives solidifies the Company’s global leadership on the aluminium cost curve.
