At the same time, the company increased the annual capacity of its alumina refinery in Orissa from 800,000 tons to 1,050,000 tons. NALCO and the privately-owned Hindalco Industries Ltd are among the world’s lowest-cost producers of alumina and aluminium. In 1999 Hindalco decided to expand the annual capacity of its aluminium smelter at Renukoot, in Uttar Pradesh, by 100,000 tons (from its existing capacity of 242,000 tons).

The bauxite slurry is then digested with caustic soda to extract the alumina from the ore while leaving the impurities as an insoluble residue. The digest conditions depend on the aluminium minerals in the ore and the impurities. The liquor, with the dissolved alumina, is then separated from the insoluble impurities by combinations of sedimentation, decantation and filtration, and the residue is washed to minimize the soda losses. The clarified liquor is concentrated and the alumina precipitated by seeding with hydrate.

The Republic of Korea does not produce primary aluminium, but, like Japan, has facilities for the manufacture of rolled aluminium products. In 1999 Alcan and a local wiremanufacturing company formed a Korean-based joint venture, Alcan Taihan Aluminum Ltd, to market such products throughout the Asia-Pacific region. In 2000 Alcan became the leading Asian manufacturer of aluminium rolled products through the acquisition of Aluminium of Korea Ltd (Koralu). Australia is the world’s largest producer and exporter of bauxite and alumina.
