Brazil - VALESUL Aluminium Project (Inglês)

VALESUL would substitute aluminum imports with domestic production which would rely on Brazil's abundant hydroelectric resources for power and ample reserves of bauxite for raw material. Also, it would serve as a training ground to prepare the skilled management and manpower needed to develop the aluminum industry in the Amazon region, which has enormous potential. Moreover, it would introduce to Brazil an advanced aluminum reduction technology. At full production, the project's output would reach 86,000 tons per year and substitute imports with an estimated yearly value of US$145 million. The main project components would be: a carbon plant to provide anodes, a rectifying substation to supply direct current, a potline of electrocytic cells for the reduction process, and a cast house to cast billets, slabs, and ingots. The project faces no special risks.
