CHINA POWERS GLOBAL ALUMINIUM OUTPUT TO RECORD HIGH

Global production of primary aluminium hit an all-time high in August, with the world's smelters running at an annualised rate of 71.2 million metric tons. It was the second consecutive month that run-rates were above the 70-million metric ton mark. Prior to July the level had been exceeded only once, in August 2022.

The International Aluminium Institute (IAI) made some significant revisions to its primary production numbers in its latest monthly update, lifting previous assessments of output in both China and the rest of the world. It's now clear that China, the world's largest producer, is experiencing a production surge thanks to improved power supply in previously drought-hit parts of the country's hydro-electric system.
