Hamburg/Germany — The expansion will increase the company’s alumina hydrate production capacity in Brunsbüttel by approximately 15,000 tons per annum, enabling the company to meet growing global demand for its alumina products.

The expansion involved debottlenecking the alumina slurry feed capacity by installing an additional on-purpose alumina unit and constructing two new drum dryers, as well as a new spray dryer.

The new units were commissioned and started up over the past six months, with the last unit reaching beneficial operation during October 2017.

The manufacturer plans to start up additional alumina production in Lake Charles in the US as part of the Lake Charles Chemical Project at the end of 2019. Further expansion of the alumina capacity from the Brunsbüttel site is also being considered, the company announced.
