Rusal tests new inert anode pot

Rusal tests new inert anode pot

(Posted on 12/06/20)

RUSAL , a leading global aluminium producer, has announced that it has commenced testing operations for a pilot industrial electrolytic cell with inert anodes, which has an improved design and a record low carbon footprint.

The new pilot model will replace the inert anode electrolytic cell already being tested by RUSAL as the next step in the development of innovative carbon-free aluminum cell technology.

The new generation of inert anode electrolytic cell has a number of fundamentally new technical solutions that can improve the purity of aluminum produced, reduce the carbon footprint to a record low level of 2 tons of CO2 per tonne of aluminium produced and reduce operating costs during the production process. The pilot experimental pot cell will have a capacity of approximately 1 tonne of aluminum per day at 140 thousand ampere current rate.

RUSAL is one of the world's leading aluminum producers in developing cell technology using inert anodes. “This technology will increase efficiency and significantly improve the carbon footprint of aluminum production”, said Victor Mann, RUSAL’s Technical Director.

RUSAL is a leader of the global aluminium industry. In 2019, the Company accounted for about 5.9% of global production of aluminium and 6.3% of alumina production. RUSAL's offices are operating in 20 countries all over the world and across 5 continents. RUSAL common stock is traded at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. RUSAL's ordinary shares are traded on the Moscow Exchange.
