Rio Tinto has indicated that it is considering all options to ensure the viability of its aluminium smelters in Australia and New Zealand, amid growing concern that they may be closed.

Labor leader Anthony Albanese recently visited the Boyne smelter in Queensland, and said he had been told that Rio was looking at transitioning the plant to renewables.
