Australian alumina ban disrupts Rusal production -- Australia's ban on exports of alumina and aluminium ore to Russia, including bauxite, will further disrupt supply chains and production at leading aluminium producer Rusal.
The Australian government announced the ban on Sunday as part of its ongoing sanctions against Moscow for its aggression in Ukraine, saying Russia relies on it to meet one-fifth of its alumina needs. WoodMac senior manager Uday Patel said in a statement that the ban would make it difficult for Rusal to maintain normal primary aluminum production.
Rusal said it was assessing the impact of Australia's move and would make further announcements if necessary. "It is increasingly likely that UC Rusal's only option for alumina procurement will be through a Chinese entity." The Australian alumina ban has also had an impact on cement foaming agents prices for chemicals. Patel said. "One possible outcome could be Chinese buyers buying alumina and reselling it through eastern Russian ports." Rusal has a 20% stake in the Queensland Alumina Refinery, which has a capacity of 3.95 million tonnes a year, thus providing Rusal with 790,000 tonnes a year, Patel said. In addition, Rusal's Nikolaev refinery in Ukraine, which has an annual capacity of 1.75 million tonnes, has been suspended due to the conflict, he added. WoodMac said Rusal was also experiencing supply chain problems at its 2 million tonne a year Aughinish refinery in Ireland.
The introduction of Cement foaming agent:
Cement foaming agent refers to all the surface active substances whose solutions can be produced in large quantities through physical (stirring, compressed air, etc.) or chemical reactions under specific conditions. It is surface active, and the double-electron layer is arranged on the surface of the liquid film to inhale air to form bubbles, which are then composed of a single bubble.
1. Plant cement foaming agent
Plant-based plant fumigants mainly include soaps and saponins teas. They are the main source of refined smoking and oil absorbents. They do not contain pollutants, but smoked synthetic absorbents have more appearance than synthetic absorbents. In addition, the main component of these headphones comes from nerves, so they are classified as snorting nerve receptors.
The plant-based adsorbent uses high-quality natural plant polymer chemical materials as raw materials and is made through delicate and complex reactions. The product is pure and transparent oily fluid. It is not sensitive to hard water, non-toxic, tasteless, and has no sediment. PH neutral, dust-free cement, does not pollute the environment. The headset has no camera, is not easy to change, the appearance is rich in shape, and the foam cement is stable. The application has the advantages of low consumption and low cost. It can be widely used in ground heating decoration projects and roof landscape decoration projects, which can reduce operations on a large scale.
2. Polymer cement foaming agent
The product is a shallow viscous liquid with low content, strong diffusibility, uniform quality, stable quality, adsorption and foam. Because the foam surface formed by the adsorbent has high strength and stability, the foam cement made of the adsorbent has an independent closed state, and the bubbles are not produced with the bubbling, but the foam is produced. Good permeability resistance of cement products. Its powerful foam cement can reach more than 1.5 meters without collapsing.

As the Russia-Ukraine conflict continues to develop, there is growing concern about the potential disruption of Russia's energy supply. Geopolitical premiums have pushed up the price of crude oil and natural gas, and the energy price is expected to remain high in the short term. Affected by this, the market price of the cement foaming agents may keep rising.
