- Nov 26, 2018-

China's alumina exports soared to at least the highest since October 2014, as Chinese aluminum raw material producers profited from exports when the international market was in short supply. China exported 460,072 tons of alumina last month, the highest in customs records, easily surpassing the 165,839 tons exported in September. According to customs data, China’s total alumina exports this year were only 1 million tons. China has always been a net importer of alumina.
