Alunorte continues to work with the authorities to lift remaining embargoes

Alunorte continues to work with the authorities to resume activities at its bauxite residue disposal area, DRS2, and return to normal operations.

On Wednesday November 7, 2018, the 9th Federal Court in Belem, Pará, declared its competence and ratified the previous decision from the State Court, Pará, about the embargo in order to further preside and decide on the case.

Alunorte is duly delivering on the commitments agreed in the Term of Adjusted Conduct (TAC) signed with Ministerio Público Federal (MPF), the Pará State Ministério Público (MPPA), and the State Government of Pará, represented by the Secretariat of State of Environment and Sustainability (SEMAS).

Internal and external reviews, including dozens of inspections from authorities, confirmed that there was no overflow from Alunorte’s bauxite residue deposits or harmful spills from the February rain event.
