Brazilian steelmaker ArcelorMittal Brazil will launch this year a desalination project to supply water to its Tubarão mill. The company will invest BRL 50 million in the project, which is expected to be completed in a two-year timeframe.

The project will allow the Tubarão mill to produce its own industrial water out of desalinated sea water, adding an alternative water supply source, the company said.

The use of desalinated sea water at the Tubarão mill aims to increase water security and guarantee the mill’s operational stability, said Jorge Luiz Oliveira, ArcelorMittal Brazil’s vice-president of operations.
