Swiss-based commodities trading house Trafigura confirmed that it bartered alumina with the Iranian Aluminum Company, Iralco, folllwing an agreement reached in October 2011. Trafigura says that no deliveries have been made to Iralco since it was sanctioned by the European Union in December 2012. E.U. sanctions were imposed on Iralco because of links to Iran's nuclear program.
