Alcoa Corporation to Permanently Close Suralco Refinery

Alcoa Corporation/US intends to permanently close the Suralco alumina refinery and bauxite mines in Suriname, fully curtailed since November 2015.

The Government of the Republic of Suriname and Alcoa continue to develop definitive agreements concerning Suralco’s remaining activities in the country and the future of the bauxite industry in Suriname. Pending completion of those agreements, Alcoa will continue to operate the Afobaka hydroelectric facility, which supplied power to the Suralco operations.
