Caption: Production of aluminium. Worker pouring molten aluminium from a crucible into an ingot mould. This is the Tajik Aluminium Plant in Tajikstan. This photograph was taken in 1987, twelve years after the factory was founded in 1975. Production at the factory has varied over the years depending on the supply of aluminium ore (alumina). In some years, hundreds of thousands of tons of aluminium are produced. The factory accounts for a large proportion of the manufacturing capacity of Tajikstan, as well as much of its exports, and employs thousands of people. Pollution from the factory has caused health problems for workers and those living in the surrounding areas.
