Rio Tinto Alcan also generates hydroelectric power and makes specialty chemicals and packaging products. The company runs its business through two business units: primary metal and bauxite and alumina. It produces about 35 million metric tons of bauxite, 9 million metric tons of alumina, and 4 million metric tons of aluminum products annually.
