Aluminum Output Up

MOSCOW -- Russia's second-largest aluminum smelter, Krasnoyarsk Aluminum, increased its output last year to 807,000 tons, up 13,000 tons from 1997, the company said in a statement Tuesday.

This was the first time it had ever passed the 800,000-ton mark.

Russia's biggest aluminum producer, Bratsk, produced 800,000 tons in 1997. Its 1998 output figure is not yet available, but Interfax reported that Bratsk had produced 771,000 tons in the first 11 months of last year.
