Alumina Limited (AWC) is an Australian resources company that invests in bauxite mining, alumina refining and aluminium smelting operations through a 40% ownership of Alcoa World Alumina & Chemicals (AWAC), the largest alumina business in the western world.

US company Alcoa owns the remaining interest in AWAC and manages its day-to-day operations. The AWAC joint venture was formed in 1994 and now has a production capacity of approximately 14.1 million tonnes of alumina per annum.

In recent times, Alumina has developed a reputation as one of the highest-yielding ASX dividend shares. However, the Alumina share price has been on a downward trend during this time. Nonetheless, the company is still a constituent of the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) which is home to the largest companies on the ASX by market capitalisation.
