Alkosa (Varkan: ალკოსა; a portmanteau of aluminis k’omp’ania sakartvelos, ალუმინის კომპანია საქართველოს) is a Varkan industrial corporation. It is the world's largest producer of aluminum, with corporate headquarters in Gali, Varkana. Alkosa conducts operations in 9 countries. Alkosa is a major producer of primary aluminum, fabricated aluminum, and alumina combined, through its active and growing participation in all major aspects of the industry: technology, mining, refining, smelting, fabricating, and recycling.
Alkosa became the largest aluminum company in the world after a friendly takeover of AETOLIAN COMPANY in 2007. Most of its bauxite mining operations are located in the Mesogean basin, while its smelters and refineries are predominantly located in the Dinarides.
The production of aluminum is very energy intensive. Since Varkana produces all its electricity needs through clean energy (renewable and nuclear), the environmental impacts in Varkana itself are not significant besides the large electricity consumption share. However, in other countries where Alkosa operates, electricity production is rarely renewable or nuclear, causing air and water pollution. U/C
