KUBAL is the sole producer of primary aluminium and the largest industrial facility in Sweden. The smelter's capacity has grown more than 10 times since it was launched in 1942. KUBAL's extensive modernization, carried out by RUSAL, has enabled the smelter to boost production efficiency and reduce the impact on the environment.

One of KUBAL main achievements of 2015 was that the smelter was able to reduce the anode effect frequency to less than 0,12 per pot day. As such, between 2010 and 2015, the smelter reduced the emissions of greenhouse gases from anode effects to approximately 70 % of the mean value. This was achieved through the training of pot operators, fine tuning of pot operation programs and dedicated maintenance on point feeders. To increase the sense of ownership in the operations, the smelter also introduced working schemes with fixed pot operators for a fixed group of pots
