manufacturing process of aluminum from bauxite

The Manufacturing Basics of Aluminium BA Systems

MANUFACTURING PROCESS. 1. Bauxite Mining. Bauxite is used as the main raw material in the manufacture of aluminium. It is a clay mineral found in tropical and sub-tropical areas such as Australia and the West Indies. The bauxite is often mined from only a few metres below the ground level. About 4-5 tonnes of bauxites are required for 1 tonne of aluminium. To extract pure alumina, the Bayer ...

The Transformation of Bauxite to Aluminum (and the ...

Aluminum’s widespread use might infer ease of accessibility, but such is not the case; aluminum is not found freely in nature, requiring the beginnings of aluminum – bauxite ore – to go through a complex conversion process in order to produce the lightweight metal we so heavily rely on.

Production process - European Aluminium

Aluminium production begins with bauxite, the “aluminium ore”. Most bauxite is mined in tropical areas, with around 50km 2 of new land mined each year. At the same time, a matching area of land is restored to nature. Alumina production Pure aluminium oxide, called alumina, is extracted from bauxite via a process called refining, composed of two steps: a digestion process, using caustic ...
