Non-ferrous metals producer Hindalco Industries plans to start its 1.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) alumina refinery in Orissa by the end of March 2013, a company official said on Wednesday. The plant, in Orissa’s Rayagada district, was scheduled to start operations in January, but has been delayed due to slow progress of project work. “We hope to commission the plant by end of March,” SK Mishra, a senior advisor at Utkal Alumina International, a wholly-owned unit of Hindalco, said. Hindalco’s bauxite mining in the state, which was scheduled to start in October 2012, has also been delayed and may start by the end of this month, Mishra said. The company initially aims to mine 4.3 to 4.4 mtpa of bauxite for the refinery, though it has permission to mine 8.5 million tonnes.
