Given the current LME market pressures and rising gas price over the coming years, it is critical that Alba continues to adopt measures to improve its efficiency. In line with this objective, Alba will soon embark on Phase II of Project Titan, which will be crucial to maintaining our position as one of the leading, low cost producers in the aluminium industry.”
