Global aluminium demand growth expected to average 5.5% or more in coming years in spite of threat from weak LME price, substitutes including the recycled metal of its own. Availability of quality raw materials at right price plays a major role for sustainable growth of the industry. Over the last decade, Odisha in particular has been in the national and international focus predominantly for activities related to primary metal production that include primarily aluminium, iron & steel. The growth of metallurgical activities in the state has thrown up many challenges especially in the areas of railway logistics, availability of major raw materials like coal tar pitch, coal for captive generating station, aluminum fluoride and other environmental issues.
