    [$$] Supply deals with Rusal’s Irish plant to restart as sanctions ease

    The Aughinish alumina refinery, near Limerick, is a key part of Europe’s industrial supply chain, feeding supplies to smelters that produce aluminium for carmakers such as BMW and Volkswagen as well as Airbus, the manufacturer of the A380 superjumbo. Rio, which is the biggest supplier of bauxite to Aughinish and buyer of its alumina, declared force majeure on its contracts with Rusal earlier this month after the Russian company was cut off from doing business in US dollars. The company can now resume trading with the plant under contracts signed before the sanctions were announced, after the US Treasury on Monday extended the deadline for US and non-US citizens to wind up business with Rusal to late October.
