Iranian aluminum producers annually manufacture about 350,000 tons of aluminum ingots, said deputy minister of industries, mining and trade, Mehdi Karbasian, on Saturday. Describing the current production volume as “insufficient”, the official said the figure must reach 1.5 million tons by the end of 2025, according to objectives set in the 20-Year National Vision Plan (2005-25). He noted that aluminum products have one of the highest value added among all mineral products and called for the development of the domestic aluminum industry, IRNA reported.
