Since the mid-1990s and in the new millennium, the picture has worsened. Internal freight charges rose and with the collapse of the FSU's military/industrial economy, the sale of by-products from the nepheline refineries, such as Portland cement, soda ash and potash, declined in line with the fall in industrial demand. It is the sale of these by-products in the local market that largely justifies the recovery of alumina using the nepheline process. An additional problem for the refineries is that none of them has the technology to produce alumina of a sufficiently high quality to match their western competitors.

With European medium and heavy commercial vehicle production at around 405 000 units per annum and trailer production exceeding 125000 units, the outlook for further development in the manufacture of aluminium applications in this sector (extrusions, sheets and castings) remains very positive. The International Commercial Vehicle Exhibition in Frankfurt highlighted several exciting developments, such as various new tipping semi-trailers and flat beds, as well as innovative components, such as aluminium reinforced side curtains and new aluminium roller blinds for beverage delivery trucks.

6 m tonnes per year shortfall, which has to be imported. 3). 8 m tonnes. The most significant of the remainder are the Nikolaev alumina refinery in the Ukraine and the Pavlodar in Kazakhstan, each with a capacity of 1 m tonnes per year. 25 m tonnes per year. Four of the plants, the Uralsk, the Bogoslovsk, Bauxitogorsk and Pavlodar refineries, use local bauxite resources. Three further refineries, the Nikolaev, Zaprozhye and Ghyandia plants, were constructed to treat imported bauxites, while another three, the Volkhov, the Pikalevo and the Achinsk plants, use Soviet technology to treat nephelines to produce alumina.
