Mining and Refining – Bauxite Residue Management
Bio-remediation, which aims to convert bauxite residue into a well structured soil, through chemical and physical treatment, is currently the focus of projects in Ireland, Australia, India and Jamaica. Bio-remediation is largely dependent on the characteristics of the bauxiteWillowdale Bauxite Mine - Alcoa,Willowdale Bauxite Mine Address: PO Box 84, Waroona, Western Australia, 6215,It mines and supplies bauxite ore to the Wagerup alumina refinery.,Environment •Alcoa is a recognised world leader in mine site rehabilitation and is the first mining company in the world toAluminum Smelting Furnaces and Processing of Bauxite Ore,The smelting of aluminum begins with the extraction of bauxite ore by a form of open cast mining. The bauxite is washed and screened before being converted to alumina, a white powdery element from which the aluminum is produced. Aluminum smelting is carried out in a Hall Heroult reduction cell, which is lined with carbon.
