Hydro Brazil is the host sponsor of the ICSOBA 2018 conference and exhibition in Belem. Hydro is a global aluminium company with production, sales and trading activities throughout the value chain, from bauxite, alumina and energy generation to the production of primary aluminium and rolled products as well as recycling. Based in Norway, the company has 13 000 employees involved in activities in more than 40 countries on all continents. Rooted in more than a century of experience in renewable energy production, technology development and progressive partnerships, Hydro is committed to strengthening the viability of the customers and communities they serve.
In Brazil, Hydro is present in many parts of the aluminium value chain. Brazil is Hydro's main source of bauxite and is the country where the company has the most employees - more than 5 000 if long-term contractors are included.
Bauxite is mined in Paragominas and Trombetas and refined to alumina at the world's largest alumina refinery, Alunorte in Barcarena. Hydro Brazil also produces 460 000 tonnes of aluminium metal annually at the Albras plant, which they partly own.
Sapa (now Hydro Extrusions) has operations in Brazil. Hydro Extrusion is the world leader in aluminium solutions within extrusions, building systems, and precision tubing.
