Oregon's Primary Aluminum Industry
Oregon aluminum manufacturers and fabricators are located in: Clackamas, Lane, Multnomah, Washington, Douglas, Wasco, Umatilla, and Coos counties.  Although this industry employs less than 1 percent of Oregon’s statewide manufacturing employment, the industry's payroll was $73 million in 1998.  The Northwest aluminum industry uses about 4 percent of the total energy consumed in the Pacific Region (including Washington, Oregon, California, Alaska, and Hawaii).   
  The U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Industrial technologies helps industry research and demonstrate leading edge or emerging technologies. The following technologies are likely to become commercially available in the next year or two and will yield energy savings, waste reduction or productivity benefits for this industry.
