VIETNAM PRESS-Alumina output to jump in 2015 on new plant - Thanh Nien

Vietnam's alumina output will jump this year as a processing plant will become operational later in the year while the Tan Rai complex, the country's only operational facility, will raise output by 11 percent, the Thanh Nien (Young People) newspaper reported, citing the investor of the projects.

The Tan Rai complex will raise production this year to 540,000 tonnes, while the Nhan Co complex in the country's central highland province of Dak Nong will deliver its first alumina in the fourth quarter, it reported, citing state-run Vinacomin, the country's top mining firm.

Alumina is made from bauxite ore and used for processing aluminium. Most of Vietnam's alumina output is for export.
