The production capacity of SGAR is estimated at 2 million tons of SGA per year which will be developed in stages and will require bauxite ore feed of 6 million wet metric tons (wmt) per year. The capacity of the first stage of the SGAR is estimated at 1 million tons of SGA per year. The construction of the additional capacity of 1 million tons of SGA will commence when the operations of the first phase of the plant is positive. INALUM expects to acquire alumina feed for its aluminum plant through the development of SGAR.
