Hydro’s Alunorte alumina refinery in Brazil has begun operation of a new water treatment station, after receiving an operating license from the Secretary of State for Environment and Sustainability (Semas) on January 24, 2020. The BRL 675 million (USD 160 million) project, part of a modernization of the refinery's effluent management system, prepares the plant for future climate change.

The project also has new wastewater and rainwater containment basins, new carbon steel pipes and repowering pumps for drainage of material to the treatment stations. With the completion of the project, Alunorte now has the capacity to treat 14,500 cubic meters of water per hour.

Together with the water treatment station, the construction of the two new containment basins increased the water containment capacity of the operational area. The two have a capacity of 274,000 cubic meters, equivalent to 110 Olympic swimming pools.
