Hydro enters environment research collaboration

Fast and effective re-establishment of biodiversity by the bauxite is mined in Paragominas – that is the goal of a comprehensive research project by three Brazilian research institutions, the University of Oslo and Norwegian aluminium producer Hydro.

The cooperation agreement with the University of Oslo and the three Brazilian research institutions Federal University of Pará (UFPA), Federal Rural University of the Amazon (UFRA) and Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi (MPEG) was signed in Belém, Brazil, on Friday.

"Mining in Paragominas takes place where large areas of rainforest were cleared or impacted by forest and land users decades ago. Our ambition is that the site shall be restored to a standard that is comparable to the original rainforest. If we manage it, we will also be able to get a positive climate effect of mining in the area," said Executive Vice President Johnny Undeli, who is head of Hydro's Bauxite & Alumina business.
