    Norsk Hydro looks to master magnetism to keep carbon promise

    KARMOEY, Norway/LONDON (Reuters) - In the cavernous chamber of Norsk Hydro's aluminium smelter on the Norwegian island of Karmoey, the magnetic forces are so strong they make heavy iron wrenches float out of the hands of workers.

    Rio Tinto shipping more aluminium to Europe as U.S. demand slows

    Rio Tinto has begun shipping more aluminium to markets like Europe to offset slowing demand from the United States partly caused by the trade dispute between China and the U.S., Chief Executive Jean-Sébastien Jacques said on Thursday. Jacques said that demand for Rio Tinto's products had not been impacted by the dispute, which is threatening to escalate this week. An agreement could avert a sharp increase in U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods that President Donald Trump has threatened to impose on Friday.

    Big Four miners languish amid demand, ESG, capex concerns

    The world's biggest diversified miners have yet to see their share prices reflect their role as providers of the minerals needed for a shift to a low-carbon economy. Mining companies provide minerals such as cobalt used in electric vehicle batteries and copper for increased electrification, and the sector's balance sheets are in rude health. Reminders of the dangers include a disaster in Brazil at a Vale tailings dam in January that killed an estimated 300 people, and a U.S. corruption investigation into Glencore, announced in April.
