Operational areas

Alcoa’s Australian operations make up an integrated aluminium industry which includes bauxite mines, alumina refineries, aluminium smelters, rolled products plants and an aluminium recycling operation – adding value to Australia’s resources at every stage.
The aluminium production process starts in Western Australia where Alcoa operates the Huntly and Willowdale mines in the Darling Range south of Perth, supplying bauxite to Alcoa’s refineries at Kwinana, Pinjarra, Wagerup.
Alcoa operates two aluminium smelters in Victoria, at Point Henry in Geelong and Portland. Portland Aluminium is a joint venture with CITIC Resources Australia Pty Ltd and Marubeni Aluminium Australia Pty Ltd.
Our Victorian operations also include a brown coal mine and power station at Anglesea which supply electricity to the Point Henry smelter and rolled products plant.
Alcoa Australia Rolled Products has operations at Point Henry in Victoria and Yennora in Western Sydney, producing rolled aluminium products for drink packaging. Our operation in Yennora is one of Australia’s largest aluminium recyclers. We recycle about 55,000 tonnes of aluminium each year.
