Aluminum Increase

MOSCOW -- Russian aluminum output will rise to 3.130 million tons this year from 3.005 million in 1998, the Alyuminy association, which unites the country's aluminum producers, estimates.

Alyuminy said Russia's share of world aluminum output will rise to 13.5 percent compared with 13.2 percent last year, but its share of the world export market would decline from 21.3 percent last year to 19.6 percent this year.
