Case Study: Conversion of Bauxite Ore to Aluminum Metal

Bauxite Ore Processing Aluminum is found in varying amounts in nature as aluminosilicates (contains aluminum, silicon, and oxygen) in various types of clay. As the minerals are weathered they gradually breakdown into various forms of hydrated aluminum oxide, Al 2 O 3 .xH 2 O, known as bauxite.

Bauxite

Bauxite is an aluminum-rich sedimentary rock. It is the principal ore of aluminum. Aluminum in bauxite is hosted by aluminum hydroxide minerals, mostly gibbsite 4. The major impurities are iron oxides and hydroxides (which give reddish color to most bauxites) and clay minerals.

Energy needed to produce aluminum

Bauxite is then converted into aluminum oxide, or alumina, using natural gas at plants located in the southern United States. After alumina is extracted from bauxite ore, further processing called 'smelting' is necessary to convert it into aluminum. In this process, alumina is dissolved in a solution and a strong electric current is applied.
