Hindalcos 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 Indias
first alumina refinery. It is located on the
banks of the Subarnarekha River in Chhotamuri
village, 60 km from the town of Ranchi.
The recently expanded Alumina
refinery operates at 450,000 tpa
capacity, producing standard and specialty
grade alumina and hydrates to serve customers
in aluminium, refractories, ceramics, water
treatment, power and plastic industries.
A management team of 67 people work tirelessly
to ensure stringent quality and delivery standards
at competitive costs. A 30 MW coal-based captive
power plant provides uninterrupted power supply
to the refinery as well as to the surrounding
colony. The expanded plant is equipped with
advanced, and the latest technology available
in the field of alumina manufacturing.
Committed to sustainable development, Hindalco
Muri partners the community in social projects,
particularly womens empowerment, improved

Muri has a well-built colony consisting of
individual quarters for employees, separate
bachelor accommodation for young engineers,
