The processing of high silica bauxites - ScienceDirect

The Bayer process is the principal method for the production of alumina from bauxite worldwide. The modern version of the process (developed in the 1880's) still maintains the key steps of dissolution of alumina-rich minerals into hot caustic solution, separation of the insoluble phases, followed by gibbsite precipitation and calcination of the gibbsite to alumina (Al 2 O 3).

For mineral separations, processing bauxite for example, the separator provides a technology to reduce water usage, extend reserve life and/or recover and reprocess tailings. The tribo-electrostatic belt separator is relatively compact. A machine designed to process 40 tonnes per hour is approximately 9.1 meters (30 ft.) long, 1.7 meters (5.5

Review on treatment and utilization of bauxite residues in ...

Bauxite residue (red mud) is a solid waste produced in the process of alumina extraction from bauxite. More than 70 million tons of bauxite residue is generated annually. Presently, it is stored on land or in the ocean near alumina refineries. However, its high alkalinity is a potential pollution to water, land and air of close proximity.
