Hindalco’s presence in Jharkhand (through erstwhile Indal) dates back to 1943 when mining commenced at Bagru in the Lohardga district. Commissioned in 1948, the Muri alumina plant was India’s first alumina refinery. It is located on the banks of the Subarnarekha River in Chhotamuri village, 60km from the town of Ranchi.

This alumina refinery produces standard and specialty grade alumina and hydrates to serve customers in aluminium, refractories, ceramics, water treatment, power and plastic industries.

A captive power plant provides uninterrupted power supply to the refinery as well as to the surrounding colony. The expanded plant is equipped with the latest technology available in the field of alumina manufacturing.

Committed to sustainable development, Hindalco Muri partners the community in social projects, particularly women’s empowerment, improved agricultural methods for higher crop yield, income generation along with regular health and educational initiatives.

Muri has a well-built colony consisting of individual quarters for employees, separate bachelor accommodation for young engineers, a club house and sports facilities and also a health centre.
