ARTICLE: Addressing the Challenge of Bauxite Residue

11/03/2019 The largest waste by-product generated in the Bayer bauxite refining process is bauxite residue, commonly called red mud. An enormous quantity of caustic red mud is generated worldwide every year, posing a very serious and alarming environmental and safety problem.

Understanding desilication products in bauxite refinery

Bauxite refinery residue (red mud) is a waste by-product generated by the extraction of alumina from bauxite ores [1-3]. Bauxite residue is generated through the Bayer process, which involves the digestion of bauxite ore using concentrated sodium hydroxide at elevated temperatures and pressures [1, 3, 4]. The residue is a hazardous material due to its high alkalinity. Storage of the vast

The History, Challenges, and New Developments in the

19/05/2016 The quantity of bauxite residue generated at a particular refinery is governed by the processing conditions and bauxite quality; the key bauxite characteristics are the alumina content, the nature of the aluminum hydrous-oxide component present (whether as gibbsite, boehmite or diaspore), and reactive and crystalline silica contents. The processing conditions are driven by energy and
