RUSAL opens today phase one of the world’s most advanced low-carbon aluminium production plant, Taishet Aluminium Smelter (TaAZ), in Taishet, Siberia, further demonstrating RUSAL’s commitment to decarbonisation of its operations and consumer product chains.
The opening of Taishet is a huge step for the global aluminium industry, which is experiencing a growing deficit of primary aluminium. Without new low-carbon primary aluminium capacity, the energy transition will take much longer than planned
By opening TaAZ, RUSAL is contributing to the fight against the climate crisis, producing low-carbon aluminium which is vital to the circular economy and decarbonisation of the industry. Once fully operational, the smelter is expected to produce 428.5 thousand tons of low-carbon aluminium per year, helping to meet the high demand for aluminium worldwide.
