Russian Aluminium Giant Eyes Chinese Works

Rusal has already acquired a cathode plant in April

Rusal, the world's second largest aluminium producer form Russia, is likely to acquire some Chinese plants.

Rusal's Finished Products Department head Patrice L'Huillier said, "The company is trolling a seemingly eager Chinese marketplace for potential partners in both the aluminum and alumina sectors."

Rusal has already acquired a cathode plant in April with an annual capacity of 15,000 tonnes in Linshi, in northeastern China's Shanxi Province. It plans to invest $3 million to expand the plant's capacity to 25,000 tonnes.
