  • Bauxite residue, also referred to as ‘red mud’,is the by-product of the Bayer process – an industrial
    chemical process for refining aluminum-containing ores
    in alumina, the raw material used to
    produce aluminum metal.
  • The properties of bauxite residues are determined by the type of the bauxite and the Bayer process. The technology and operating procedures at specific refineries will affect the water content and pH value of the material being discharged
  • In 2012, Globally the total production of red mud was more than 100 million tons
  • There is the possibility of extraction of the minerals iron , rare earth elements, titanium and the silicates which are found in the red mud
  • Magnetic separation technology should be improved for fine weak-magnetic material separation
    from mud slurry
  • Dried red mud is pozzolonic additive for the production of cement
  • Major products made are bricks, insulating materials for furnace, dam
  • Rare earth elements find applications in Electronics & ICT Industries
