Alcoa to sell Ark. waste treatment facility for US$250M

Alcoa Corp. said Jan. 2 that it agreed to sell its Gum Springs, Ark., waste treatment facility to Veolia ES Technical Solutions LLC for US$250 million, in a transaction that is expected to close in the first quarter.

Under the deal, Alcoa will receive US$200 million in cash at closing for the sale of its subsidiary Elementary Environmental Solutions, owner of the 1,300-acre hazardous waste treatment business in Gum Springs. An additional US$50 million will be paid to Alcoa if certain post-closing conditions are satisfied.

Alcoa said in October 2019 that it intends to sell noncore assets over the next 12 months to 18 months to generate between US$500 million and US$1 billion in cash.
