However, the social and political costs involved in the closure of any significant part of Russia's smelter capacity make it politically difficult to shut down the non-Siberian smelters. In addition, it is clear that by 2000, the aluminium industries based in the CIS were enjoying something of a renaissance and had succeeded in confounding the most gloomy of predictions about their future made in the 1990s. It is now clear that while power prices for the aluminium industries of the CIS, overwhelmingly based in Russia, did indeed rise in the mid-1990s, by 2001 power costs at $10/MWh were still the lowest in the world, rivalled only by Canada.

Nippon Steel linked up with Mitsubishi Chemicals and Kawasaki forged links with Sumitomo Chemicals. The steel companies and their partners were particularly interested in making polypropylene and glass fibre materials. Steel industry sources stressed that the step was not so large for the steel companies as it involved the same processes of rolling, stamping and trimming. With a doubling in aluminium prices in 12 months, there seemed little hope that the Japanese auto industry would be converted to aluminium at the mass volume end of the market and in 1994 there were no plans announced for a 'space-frame' project at the top end of the market.

1). 1 Electricity sources used in European aluminium production, 1996 (source: IPAI). 1 m tonnes of primary aluminium produced in western Europe in 2000, two-thirds was produced in the EU and surveys show that the power prices paid by the EU smelters are higher than the western world average. In 2000, the western European average was some $19/MWh 26 US mills per kWh, which is slightly above the western world average. Whether the liberalisation of the EU's electricity market will contribute to a lowering of EU smelter costs is still uncertain.
