As one of the oldest aluminium smelters in China, Baiyin plant utilised 140 cells relocated from Showa Light Metals' Chiba smelter in Japan. The smelter then maintained stable operation for 26 years and developed to 230 ktpa capacity during this period. It was shut down in 2015. Chalco internally transferred all capacity quotas to other aluminium projects by 2017.
