State-backed company had started the two-year project to reduce its cash costs in 2013
Aluminium Bahrain, owner of one of the world's largest smelters of the lightweight metal, said on Sunday it was on track to reduce its cash costs by $150 a tonne by January and is looking to cut costs further.
The state-backed company had started the two-year project to reduce its cash costs in 2013, the company's chief executive Tim Murray told an industry conference.
"We are ahead of the curve in terms of cost-cutting," he said. "We will reach target by January 2016 but we need a lot more."
