Rusal has begun testing new generation inert anodes to improve the efficiency of its aluminum smelters, the company noted in a news release.


The pilot project’s experimental cells will have a capacity of approximately 1mt of aluminum a day and will reduce the carbon footprint of aluminum to a record low of 2mt.


Rusal produced nearly 940,000mt of primary aluminium in the first quarter of this fiscal year, while sales declined by 17.4pc from the previous quarter to 914,000mt because demand fell by 6.4pc.


Victor Mann, Rusal’s technical director, said the technology will help make the company’s aluminum production more efficient and, in the process, reduce its carbon footprint.
