Rusal to install gas cleaning systems

(Posted on 04/11/19)

Rusal, one of the leading global aluminium producers, plans to install over 20 state-of-the-art dry gas cleaning systems (DGCS) at its smelters by 2025. These advanced systems were developed by RUSAL’s design and scientific divisions and the new equipment will allow the Company to capture over 99.5 % of hydrogen fluoride and solid fluorides.

The project to retrofit RUSAL's smelters with own DGCS was launched in 2016. In October 2019, the Bratsk aluminum smelter put into operation another DGCS, developed and manufactured by the design and scientific divisions of RUSAL-SibVAMI (Irkutsk) and RUSAL ITC (Krasnoyarsk). More DGCS’ are already in operation at the Company’s industrial sites in Shelekhov and Novokuznetsk.

As part of RUSAL’s environmental action plan for the period spanning ?2020-2024, it is expected that another 17 DGCS’ will be assembled and put into operation at the Bratsk, Novokuznetsk and Irkutsk aluminium smelters.

"This project is truly unique thanks to our patented design solutions, enabling RUSAL to complete the switch to utilising our own dry gas cleaning systems as part of our "EcoSoderberg" technology implementation. This innovative new technology outperforms the existing foreign analogues and delivers a superior performance, both in terms of RUSAL's sustainability footprint and overall efficiency characteristics," said Victor Mann, RUSAL’s Technical director.

RUSAL is the leader of the global aluminium industry. In 2018, the Company accounted for about 5.8% of global production of aluminium and 6.2% of alumina production. The Company employs about 64,000 people. RUSAL's offices are operating in 20 countries all over the world and across 5 continents.
