TEHRAN (FNA)- Aluminum ingot production has upped by 33% during the first two months of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21- May 22), Iranian Mines and Mining Industries Development and Renovation Organization (IMIDRO) announced on Wednesday.

“Four Iranian aluminum ingot producers have produced 86,216 tons of ingot while the number was 64,689 tons in the same period last year,” IMIDRO added.
