Third-party consultancy analysis of water and soil outside Alunorte

Alunorte, Hydro’s alumina refinery in Brazil, has sealed and secured a pipe that was detected during an inspection by Secretariat of Environment and Sustainability in the Brazilian state of Pará (SEMAS) last week.

After the pipe was sealed and secured, Alunorte commissioned a third-party environment consultancy Enviro-Tec to analyze the water and soil outside of Alunorte.

The testing was carried out on February 22. The Enviro-Tec report concluded that the rain water that had leaked through the construction pipe had not caused negative impact to the soil. See full report in the link.
