At the edge of the desert in North Khorasan province in northeast Iran, near the country’s largest deposit of bauxite, sits an aluminium production complex that the government has publicly hailed as a key part of its efforts to boost output of the metal. But the site near the city of Jajarm is also home to a secret facility set up by Iran’s elite security force, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, that has been producing aluminium powder for use in its missile programme, according to a former Iranian government official and documents. Aluminium powder, derived from bauxite, is a key ingredient in solid-fuel propellants used to launch missiles. According to the documents related to the aluminium powder programme, the Jajarm facility is run by Iran Alumina Company.
NFC and Iran Alumina Company are working together on project sponsored by IMIDRO in Jajarm, North Khorasan Iran according to IMIDRO official website. The project investment estimate is 132 milion euros.
The Iranian Mines and Mining Industries Development and Renovation Organization (IMIDRO) is an Iran-based entity that is owned or controlled by Iran’s Ministry of Industries and Mines. Iran Alumina Company is a subsidiary of state-owned mines and metal holding company Iranian Mines and Mining Industries Development and Renovation Organisation (IMIDRO). IAC held talks with NFC about obtaining equipment.
NFC’s website identifies Iran as one of its markets and lists a 2005 news release identifying the Jajarm alumina plant as a “technical modification project undertaken by NFC.” The Chinese company didn’t respond to questions about whether it offered IAC equipment, technology and services in relation to aluminium powder production.
