Norsk Hydro said that it would halt production indefinitely and lay off 4,700 people at Brazil’s Alunorte refinery, which has been operating at half capacity since March due to an environmental dispute.

Norsk Hydro’s decision also triggered a shutdown of its Paragominas bauxite mine, which supplies Alunorte, and will lead to the imminent closure of the nearby Albras aluminium smelter. Its partial shutdown earlier this year drove up market prices.

The original output cut occurred after the company admitted making unlicensed emissions of untreated water during heavy rains. The decision to halt production was taken as the refinery’s waste deposit area is close to full capacity and its conflict with authorities is preventing Hydro from using a newly created residue facility, the company said.

Aluminium inventories in warehouses approved by the London Metal Exchange fell below 1 million tonnes for the first time since May 2008, LME data showed.

Aluminium stocks dropped 6,850 tonnes to 999,925 tonnes, according to the data, which tracks warehouse movements with a one-day lag. Healthy demand has sent LME aluminium stocks sliding in recent years after touching a record peak of 5,492,000 tonnes on Feb. 15, 2014.
