Bayer_process

Bauxite, the most important ore of aluminium, contains only 30-54% alumina, Al 2 O 3, the rest being a mixture of silica, various iron oxides, and titanium dioxide.The alumina must be purified before it can be refined to aluminium metal. In the Bayer process, bauxite is washed with a hot solution of sodium hydroxide, NaOH, at 175°C (called digestion).

TENORM: Bauxite and Alumina Production Wastes | US EPA

 · The Bayer Process. The Bayer Process, which is used by about 80 active plants worldwide, is the primary method of producing aluminum from bauxite. Bauxite ore is dissolved in sodium hydroxide, or lye, at a high temperature and pressure. Then, the alumina and bauxite ores are separated by washing out the waste (red muds or sands) from the alumina.
