All our products are fully customer-specific.

As these anodes have an essential role in the production process of our customers we focus on quality and continuous communications with our customers.

Aluchemie is owned by Rio Tinto and Hydro, two leading aluminium manufacturers. Our anodes are used in aluminium smelters in Iceland, Canada, France and Norway.

Our product

Aluchemie anodes are high-grade blocks of carbon which our customers use in an electrolytic process. The aluminium smelters send a current through the anodes as a result of which molten aluminium is produced. This is known as the Hall-Heroult process.
