The Alouette aluminum smelter in Canada, the biggest in the Americas, does not plan to declare force majeure, a spokeswoman told Reuters, denying a market rumor.

There was speculation in the market that Alouette may have to take the measure due to a shortage of raw material alumina.

“We have not declared force majeure and we do not intend to declare it either,” a spokeswoman told Reuters.

The operation has an annual capacity of 600,000 tonnes of primary aluminum.
