Aluminium production in the first three months of 2020 was little changed, just 0.9% lower than the prior quarter. Siberian smelters represented 93% of total aluminium output.
Aluminium sales totaled 914,000 tonnes in the first quarter, down by 17.4% from 1,107,000 tonnes in the fourth quarter of 2019. Rusal said this was due to the high base effect, after a high level of sales during the last three months of the past year.
