:: Rio Tinto Alcan Inaugurates its AP60 Aluminium Smelter in Canada

 

Rio Tinto Alcan inaugurated the USD 1.1 billion Arvida Aluminium Smelter, AP60 Technology Centre, in Saguenay Lac St Jean, Quebec. The new plant has an installed capacity of 60,000 tonnes of aluminium and is the most technologically advanced aluminium smelter in the world.

Ms Jacynthe Cote CEO of Rio Tinto Alcan said that "Rio Tinto Alcan is very proud to inaugurate the new Arvida Aluminium Smelter, AP60 Technology Centre. It is an honour to share this achievement with the men and women who made it possible our employees. Today's milestone is the result of years of work by our Research and development teams, particularly the teams that first conceived, developed and tested the AP60 technology at the Laboratoire de recherche des fabrications (LRF) in France. The innovative new AP60 technology platform will also allow for the development of a series of next generation technologies permitting further improvements in productivity, and reductions in energy and environmental footprint."
