Alcoa recently announced that Alcoa World Alumina and Chemicals (AWAC) -- a global alliance between Alcoa and Alumina Ltd, with Alcoa holding 60% -- has received the Western Australian government's environmental approval for its previously announced $270 million Pinjarra alumina refinery efficiency upgrade. Work on the project, which will increase production at the facility by 600,000 metric tons per year (mtpy), will begin in March. The construction phase is expected to take nearly two years, with completion by the end of 2005. In November of 2003, AWAC announced the completion of a 250,000 mtpy construction expansion of its Jamalco alumina refinery in Clarendon ahead of schedule. AWAC also has broken ground on a 250,000 mtpy alumina expansion at its Paranam alumina refinery in Suriname.
