Novelis is constructing a state-of-the-art, greenfield rolling and recycling plant in Bay Minette, Alabama, which is anticipated to be able to initially produce 600 kilo tonnes of finished goods for the beverage packaging and automotive markets in North America.

This is the first fully-integrated aluminum plant built in the US in nearly 40 years, and the largest project in the company’s history. With a high level of project engineering complete, and all key equipment and the majority of materials contracted, the project capital cost is now expected to be $4.1 billion, the company said.
