In 2018, Kazakhstan Aluminium Smelter, an enterprise of Eurasian Resources Group (ERG), boosted aluminium production by 1.4% year-on-year to 258 400 t (254 900 t in 2017), reaching an all-time high.
The increase in output was due to higher productivity of existing equipment, mainly as a result of an increase in current at high amperage electrolytic cells. Kazakhstan Aluminium Smelter is the country's only producer of high-grade primary aluminium, which is traded on the London Metal Exchange. Over 90% of its output is exported, to Russia, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Southern and Central Europe.
