the annual arm twist from rio tinto is on again
how about we give them the strong arm
either pay 12% more for the energy
or
quit the smelter and rehabilitate the land to .... this level ( virgin native bush )
or sell us the complete smelter as is with all fixtures and fittings as presently there for 1$

your choice
( ,,,,,,,, ....... A E I O U use em sparingly theres probably not enough )

i might live and eat in a sewer .. but hey look how many of these shiny things i have got

I think the issue with nationalising the smelter is Rio Tinto control the raw ore needed to make aluminium and then have the supply contracts locked up with the buyers of the refined aluminium.

Throwing more money at a dead business doesn't help.
Everything is plastic these days, a stupid idea but there you go.

Tiwai is history.
