Deschambault Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    In 1989, the Alumax Group took on the daunting challenge of building the Deschambault Smelter in an area whose fragility and value made environmental performance a top priority. In operation since 1992, the smelter reached its full capacity in 1993 with an annual production of 215,000 metric tons of aluminum. In 1998, Alcoa acquired the Deschambault Smelter. Over the years, thanks to continuous improvements in equipment, processes and work methods, production capacity climbed to 253,000 metric tons. The Deschambault Smelter’s technical performance is an international benchmark. This success is due in part to its leading-edge management techniques, which have placed it among the top 100 employers in Canada according to Maclean’s magazine. The smelter was the first aluminum producer in Québec to achieve ISO 9002 certification in 1996, and the first to obtain ISO 14001 certification in Canada back in 1997. The smelter’s environmental performance has earned it the ICI ON RECYCLE! designation from Recyc-Québec (Performance level). It has also received an EcoGESte award for its reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and an Excellence Award from the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment for its pollution reduction initiatives. Significant effort is dedicated to training, work organization, process optimization and teamwork. This team is enthusiastic and thrives on the challenges brought by continuous improvement, the later being at the very heart of Deschambault’s mission and environmental policy.
