    Aluminum’s Even Crazier Kinsman

    Think aluminum prices have been going crazy? Primary aluminum is made from feeding gritty white alumina -- an oxide refined from bauxite ore that’s essentially the same stuff as rubies and sapphires -- into electrical furnaces. At the most basic level, years of rough balance between supply and demand seem to be finally running off the rails.

    Kazakhstan seeks new alumina markets amid Rusal's troubles

    Kazakhstan is looking to open up new markets for its alumina exports, concerned U.S. sanctions on Russian aluminium giant Rusal (RUAL.MM) could hit business and jobs. Eurasian Resources Group (ERG), a company part-owned by the Kazakh government, produces 1.5 million tonnes a year of alumina, which is used to make aluminium, selling two-thirds to Rusal . Timur Toktabayev, deputy minister for investments and development, said on Thursday the cabinet was looking at various options to avoid local plant stoppages and open up new markets.

    China stockpiles alumina for export as supply crunch drives record prices

    Chinese traders are preparing to export alumina to reap the profits from record prices for spot cargoes after the United States imposed sanctions on Russia's United Company Rusal, among the biggest producers of the aluminium raw material. China is the world's the biggest producer and consumer of alumina, a compound extracted from bauxite ore that is then smelted into aluminium metal. Rusal, the world's second-biggest aluminium producer, produces about 6 percent of the global alumina supply and the sanctions have exacerbated a shortfall in the market after a plant in Brazil was forced to halve output earlier in the year.
