The Brazilian arm of Anglo American announced an association with the Port of Agu in the state of Rio de Janeiro in Bazil to increase the reutilization of water in its 529 kilometer long iron ore pipeline, linking the port and its mines in the city of Conceicao do Mato Dentro in the neighboring state of Minas Gerais. The pipeline crosses 29 cities in its way to the port, where the iron ore and water mixture is filtered, with the ore stored for export and the water, after treatment under strict control, is disposed in the ocean.With the study now being developed, the disposed water will be increasingly reused in the port and at Anglo’s mining and industrial facilities, until a total reutilization is achieved. Currently, the effluent generated by the water filtration system is treated and mostly discarded into the sea. The joint project provides the use of part of the treated water in the operations held in industrial processes so that, gradually, no water will be discarded in the ocean.In operation since 2014, the Port of Açu has been the third-largest iron ore handling terminal in Brazil. In addition, it is building the largest natural gas power generation park in Latin America, with an LNG terminal and a 1.3 GW thermoelectric plant. Also, a second thermoelectric plant with a 1.7 GW production capacity is in construction. The port also houses an offshore logistical support base and two factories of flexible pipelines for the flow of oil and gas. With a focus on sustainable growth, it envisions industrialization with renewable and low-carbon energy projects such as solar, green hydrogen, and offshore wind.
