The Alcoa Smelting Process is an alternative to the Hall-Héroult process for the production of aluminum. While it is not in use today, Alcoa operated a commercial scale smelter in East Texas for almost ten years before closing it due to various operational problems. It is a very energy efficient process, using 30-40 percent less electricity than the Hall-Héroult process. If only minor changes to the original design were made, it may be the only alternative process likely to succeed commercially.
