Alcoa Names Top Scrap Suppliers for 2010

September 29, 2010

PITTSBURGH–Alcoa North American Rolled Products (NARP) announced today the Top Ten
Scrap Suppliers for aluminum recycling for 2010. NARP also announced the
“Most Improved” Scrap Supplier for 2010. This recognition is part of
Alcoa’s industry-leading recycling efforts and marks the sixth
consecutive year Alcoa has recognized leading firms in recycling.

Top suppliers are measured on the following criteria: safety, quality,
volume, and delivery performance. This program has been a key component
of Alcoa’s plan to sustain the flow of material for aluminum recycling
as challenging business conditions limited some availability. Alcoa has
applied the same high purchasing standards used for its supply base
since the inception of the awards program.

“We look to continue with this proven strategy, as NARP Scrap Purchasing
looks to the future to meet our growing demand for recycled aluminum for
our North American facilities,” said Leslie Shuman, Director of Strategy
and Supply Chain for NARP.

In 2009, Alcoa recycled approximately 700,000 metric tons of aluminum
helping to further increase the Company’s leading position in the
industry. Aluminum is infinitely recyclable with approximately 75
percent of all aluminum produced since 1888 still in use today. Material
from the siding, aerospace, automotive and ground transportation,
lithographic, and extrusion markets are included in NARP’s purchasing
