Abstract: The development of the aluminium smelting technology in China is reviewed. The anodic current density and the current efficiency of the Chinese smelters are lower than those of the Western smelters, but it meets the national conditions of China as the raw material qualities and the smelting philosophy are different from the Western smelter’s. The cell performance and life is related to the design, installation, preheating, start up, operation and company’s culture, it is therefore a comprehensive index and judgement of the company’s management. The cell life has influence on the cost, energy-saving and environment. Aluminium smelters should pay more attention to the importance of the cell life.
