• Landfill waste



Our smelters also generate waste – other than spent pot lining and casthouse dross – that, in the absence of other solutions, is sent to landfill. We are actively seeking alternatives for these waste products in an effort to achieve our landfill reduction targets.


Excluding the dismantling of old installations at the Baie-Comeau Smelter, in 2013 and 2014, the volume of landfilled waste has been reduced by 70% since 2005 (excluding spent potlining and dross).
