Bisnis, JAKARTA — The journey of bauxite, characterized by the halt in its commodity exports since June 10, 2023, has encountered unforeseen obstacles. Numerous challenges have arisen in the pursuit of enhancing the value of mineral resources that can be transformed into aluminum.

Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) has reported that the current operational count of bauxite smelters in the country stands at four.

Among them, three are engaged in the production of smelter-grade alumina (SGA), boasting a combined capacity of 4 million tons per year, while the fourth produces chemical-grade alumina (CGA) with an annual capacity of 300,000 tons.

Despite the government's provision of incentives and active facilitation with banks and PT PLN (Persero) to aid bauxite mining industry players in securing funding and ensuring a stable energy supply, the progress in constructing a bauxite processing and refining facility has not met expectations, according to Special Staff to the Minister of ESDM for the Acceleration of Minerba Governance Irwandy Arif.
