Novokuznetsk Aluminium Smelter

The Novokuznetsk smelter is a veteran of World War II. Between 1943 and 1945, half of Russia’s airplanes were made from aluminium produced by the facility. Today, the aerospace industry is still one of the major consumers of the smelters’ products.

Commissioned in 1943.

The smelter’s products are used by the aerospace, automotive, construction and electrical industries

Alloys, including multicomponent ones, account for more than 60% of the plant's production.

The Novokuznetsk Aluminium Smelter is currently in the process of modernizing its main production facilities in order to improve economic performance while reducing environmental impact. The modernization program includes:

technical re-equipping of electrolytic enclosures No. 7, 8, 9 and 10 with the installation of electrolysers with pre-baked anodes;

technical re-equipping of electrolysis housings No. 11,12 with installation of electrolysers with self-burning anode "Ecological Soderberg";

construction of gas cleaning units with dry cleaning method and connection to them of newly installed electrolysers.
