Turaj Zare’ said that 1674 aluminum ingots, with a total weight of 830 tons, were produced in the company during the said period, imidro.gov.ir reported on Saturday.
The official also added that 38,908 tons of alumina as well as 66,143 tons of aluminum hydrate were produced during March 21-May 21 in Iran Alumina Company.
The use of aluminum is increasingly expanding in many industries, particularly high-tech industries, because it is not only unique in properties but also it is a strategic metal, and the need for this metal in the global market has markedly increased.
High targets set for the production of this metal in the nationwide development plans and construction of several aluminum ingot plants indicates the importance of this strategic metal.
High-purity aluminum oxide (Al2 O3) is the main raw material for the production of aluminum, and Alumina Iran Company is the only producer of alumina powder in Iran.
The company is based in Jajarm complex. The geological exploration studies performed in Jajarm bauxite mines, located 10 kilometers to the northeast of Jajarm, in North Khorasan Province, indicate that the quantity and quality of Jajarm bauxite is sufficient to justify the construction of an alumina treatment plant.
