Aluminium Fluoride

Overview

Aluminium Fluoride is added to the production process of primary aluminium to lower the consumption of electricity required in the smelting process and thereby considerably contributes to the reduction of production costs of aluminium. Aluminium producers (smelters) are the main users of aluminium fluoride. The Aluminium smelting capacity in the KSA will be close to 1,200 KMT. The rest of the GCC region is likely to have Aluminium smelting capacity of 5,700 KMT. This will create an AlF3 demand of 24 KMT in the KSA and 114 KMT in the rest of the GCC region.

  • MENA demand (Tons): Aluminium Fluoride 140K
  • Ideal Capacity Size (Tons): 25K Hydrogen fluoride plant, and further expanding into 34K of Aluminium Fluoride plant
  • Manpower: 40
  • Investment Level: USD 105 Million for both HF + ALF3
