:: Alcoa Begins Assessment for Proposed Aluminum Smelter

Alcoa has announced the start of an environmental impact assessment under terms of reference established by the Trinidad and Tobago Environmental Authority for a potential aluminum smelter at LaBrea, located in southwest Trinidad.

This follows the signing in May this year by Alcoa and the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago a memorandum of understanding for a state-of-the-art, low emission smelter with a capacity of at least 250,000 metric tons per year.

Alcoa has repeated its promise to consult widely within the community as the environmental assessment proceeds, and has engaged local company, Ecoengineering Consultants Ltd, to assist and guide Alcoa in completing the requirements laid down by the EMA.
