SHANGHAI, Sept. 11 (SMM) – Despite bauxite shortfall, China’s alumina output rose sharply in August, SMM data showed.
The country produced 5.92 million tonnes of alumina in August, up 19.1% from a year ago. The daily average output increased 2.6% month-on-month to 191,100 tonnes.
Tight bauxite supply in Shanxi reduced local alumina production. But, the decline was more than offset by higher output at other producers, who ran at full capacity amid higher alumina prices.
