Aluminum Corporation of China Limited operates as a vertically integrated aluminum producer with operations in bauxite and coal mining, alumina refining and primary aluminum smelting. The company also produces ancillary products and services derived from or related to its aluminum operations. The company also has expanded its operations into power generation. The company’s key operating assets include 6 subsidiaries mainly engaged in bauxite mining; 1 integrated alumina and primary aluminum production plant; 9 alumina refineries, including its Zhengzhou Institute; 11 primary aluminum smelters; 1 carbon production plant and 1 integrated power generation company with coal mining operations. The company refines bauxite into alumina, which is then smelted into primary aluminum. In addition to alumina and primary aluminum, it produces and sells a small amount of alumina chemical products (alumina hydrate and alumina-based industrial chemical products), carbon products (carbon anodes and cathodes) and gallium. The company engages in the trading of alumina, primary aluminum, aluminum fabrication products, other non-ferrous metal products, coal products and raw and ancillary materials in bulk both manufactured by it and sourced from external suppliers domestically and abroad.
