Alcoa invests EUR 64 million in technology and environmental improvements in Spanish Smelters

Alcoa has announced today that it will invest EUR 64 million in technology and environmental improvements for three of its smelters in northern Spain.

At its smelter in Aviles, Alcoa will invest EUR 46 million in technology improvements that will allow the plant to achieve environmental standards set by the European Union to begin in 2007. The directives are to lower the total fluoride emissions, dust and benzoalfapyrene and must be completed by the end of 2006. The Aviles project is a result of Alcoa R&D efforts to introduce newly developed improvements to Soderberg pot technology.

Earlier this month, Alcoa signed a voluntary agreement with the regional government of Galicia impacting two of Alcoa's smelting facilities, one in San Ciprian, the other in La Coruna. The agreement includes specific actions and projects addressing emissions proposed by Alcoa to improve the local environment, which will include an EUR 18 million investment by the company over the next five years. Alcoa's Alumina refinery in San Ciprian is also included in this agreement.
