- Mar 14, 2019-

Russia's aluminum producer Rusal said on Tuesday that it plans to start the second production line at the Boguchansk aluminum smelter in Siberia at the end of March.

In April last year, RUSAL disclosed the news of being sanctioned by the United States. The US Treasury Department announced in January this year that it would lift sanctions against three companies related to Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska, including Rusal, En+ Group and JSC EuroSibEnergo.

RUSAL previously indicated plans to increase the smelter's aluminum capacity from 149,000 tons per year to 298,000 tons per year.
