The Tailings Management Plan was developed by the Renova Foundation team with great care, in partnership with experts, academics and civil society organizations. After completion of the three workshops on the topic, the Plan was consolidated, filed and, after some changes, is now awaiting the final approval of the environmental agencies.
At the moment, Renova is working in a pilot area in the Gualaxo do Norte river. After approval of the pilot, the Plan will be implemented in the other stretches of affected watercourse and made available for consultation on the website.
It is important to emphasize that the management of tailings does not represent the total removal of the waste released to the environment. There are various types of treatment and environmental recovery of the affected areas without necessarily removing the material. The implementation of the Management Plan will provide the best decision making, taking into account the lowest socio-environmental impact.
