TENORM: Bauxite and Alumina Production Wastes Radiation

Oct 06, 2017 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.

It is primarily composed of the insoluble fraction of the bauxite ore that remains after extraction of the aluminium-containing components. Iron oxides (10 30%), titanium dioxide (2 15%), silicon oxide (5 20%) and undissolved alumina (0 20%) make up the residue, together with a wide range of other oxides which will vary according to the initial bauxite source.

Bayer process Wikipedia

The Bayer process is the principal industrial means of refining bauxite to produce alumina (aluminium oxide) and was developed by Carl Josef Bayer.Bauxite, the most important ore of aluminium, contains only 30–60% aluminium oxide (Al 2 O 3), the rest being a mixture of silica, various iron oxides, and titanium dioxide. The aluminium oxide must be purified before it can be refined to
