Have your say

The full EPA assessment process is expected to run until around the end of 2022.

There will be several opportunities for community and stakeholder engagement and comment. More information about the EPA’s process can be found here.

Alcoa is committed to being open and transparent throughout this process and about our operations generally.

We have already reached out to a wide range of stakeholders and will continue to do so.
