Notes

Definitions

Electrical power used in primary aluminium production includes power used for electrolysis by the Hall-Héroult processes (including rectification from AC to DC) and normal smelter auxiliaries (including pollution control equipment) up to the point where the liquid aluminium is tapped from the pots.  It excludes power used in casting and carbon plants.

Data Use

The data presented here is not suitable for life cycle assessment (LCA) purposes, rather data from the IAI life cycle inventory (LCI) reports or from alternative sources, such as regional aluminium assocaitions or life cycle data providers should be used.

Source of Data

The data included in this IAI Statistical Report have been derived from voluntary reports of IAI Member and non-Member companies. Sources outside the industry or estimates are used for "Estimated Unreported" and "China" regions only.

Data Aggregation

The IAI Statistical System is designed to meet the requirement that, in general, individual company data be included only within appropriately aggregated totals by declared geographical areas and not be reported separately. The declared geographical areas and the primary aluminium producing countries which fall in those areas are as follows:

  • Africa: Cameroon, Egypt, Ghana, Mozambique , Nigeria (1997-Present), South Africa
  • Asia (ex China): Azerbaijan*, Bahrain (1980-2011), India, Indonesia, Iran*, Japan, Kazakhstan (2007-Present), Malaysia*, North Korea*, South Korea (1980-1992), Tadzhikistan, Taiwan (1980-1982), Turkey, United Arab Emirates (1980-2011)
  • China: China
  • Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC): Bahrain (2012-Present), Oman (2012-Present), Qatar (2012-Present), United Arab Emirates (2012-Present)
  • North America: Canada, United States of America
  • South America: Argentina, Brazil, Mexico (1980-2003), Suriname (1980-2001), Venezuela
  • Europe:  Austria (1980-1992), Bosnia and Herzegovina*, Croatia*, France, German Democratic Republic* (1980-1990), Germany, Greece, Hungary* (1980-1991), Hungary (1991-2006), Iceland, Italy, Montenegro (2006-Present), Netherlands, Norway, Poland*, Romania*, Russian Federation* (1973-1994), Russian Federation (1994-Present), Serbia and Montenegro* (1973-1996), Serbia and Montenegro (1997-2006), Slovakia* (1975-1995), Slovakia (1996-Present), Slovenia* (1973-1995), Slovenia (1996-Present), Spain, Sweden, Switzerland (1973-2006), Ukraine* (1973-1995), Ukraine (1996-Present) United Kingdom
  • Oceania: Australia, New Zealand

An asterisk indicates that primary aluminium production data were not reported to the IAI by the company or companies producing primary aluminium solely within that country; these constitute "Estimated Unreported", where data is available. Dates given against a country indicate that data were reported or not reported, as appropriate, for the limited period shown.

Data Integrity

The IAI considers the figures shown to be reliable, but they may be subject to revision.
