Aluminum Sales Level

MOSCOW -- Russia's fourth-largest aluminum producer, the Siberian-Ural Aluminum Co., is not going to increase aluminum output next year but will try to become self-sufficient in alumina, SUAL's chief said Tuesday.

"We are not planning an increase in aluminum output, but we need more alumina," Viktor Vekselberg told reporters.

"We are producing about 330,000 tons of aluminum and 580,000 tons of alumina, so we have to increase [alumina] output to reach the figure 650,000 we need to become self-sufficient," he added.
