    If the Alumex group is dealing with Aluminium then why not produce the Aluminium ingots in the Country? They could import the raw Bauxite from Indonesia and convert it into pure Aluminium using electricity.They could buy 10,000Acres of land and install solar panels,wind generators to produce D.C.electrical power to breakdown Bauxite to pure Aluminium. When the plant is not in operation then they could sell the excess power to the grid.
