LONDON: Soaring electricity prices in Europe have triggered cuts in energy-intensive production of aluminium. Out of Europe’s total aluminium capacity of 4.5 million tonnes, Bank of America reckons about 650,000 tonnes have been cut so far while CRU estimates 729,000 tonnes.

Below is a list of the smelters that have lowered production. Source: Company announcements, CRU, Bank of America

ALCOA

The metals producer reached a deal in December to end aluminium production from its San Ciprian facility in Spain for two years. The smelter’s annual capacity is 228,000 tonnes.

ALDEL

The Dutch aluminium smelter in Delfzijl reduced output in October. Its annual capacity is 150,000 tonnes.

ALRO

The Romanian metals producer is set to cut output by 60% in a first phase. Its annual capacity is 283,000 tonnes.

DUNKIRK

The 285,000-tonne-per year Dunkirk smelter in France said it would reduce output by 15%.

NORSK HYDRO

The Slovalco smelter will cut production to around 60% of its output or about 70,000 tonnes of aluminium.

TALUM

The company lowered production from its Slovenian smelter to a third from November 1. It produced 114,581 tonnes in 2021, according to Talum.
