Alumina Processes and Uses feeco

Alumina is primarily derived from bauxite ore through the Bayer process, in which a caustic soda material, in combination with heat and pressure, is used to dissolve aluminum-bearing minerals from the bauxite. Bauxite residue is then separated from the sodium aluminate, allowing alumina to be crystallized from the remaining solution.

Bauxite Wikipedia

Bauxite is the main source of the rare metal gallium.. During the processing of bauxite to alumina in the Bayer process, gallium accumulates in the sodium hydroxide liquor. From this it can be extracted by a variety of methods. The most recent is the use of ion-exchange resin. Achievable extraction efficiencies critically depend on the original concentration in the feed bauxite.
