  • Mining and Refining Process World Aluminium

    Mining and Refining Process. The Bayer Process was invented and patented in 1887 by Austrian scientist Karl Josef Bayer. Two to three tonnes of bauxite are required to produce one tonne of alumina. 90% of the global alumina supply of around 90 million tonnes is used in aluminium production. Alumina refineries tend to be located close to bauxite

  • Bauxite mining and alumina refining: process description

    Objective: To describe bauxite mining and alumina refining processes and to outline the relevant physical, chemical, biological, ergonomic, and psychosocial health risks. Methods: Review article. Results: The most important risks relate to noise, ergonomics, trauma, and caustic soda splashes of the skin/eyes. Other risks of note relate to fatigue, heat, and solar ultraviolet and for some operations tropical diseases, venomous/dangerous animals, and remote locations. Exposures to bauxite

    The Worsley Alumina JV is an integrated project that consists of two operations in the south west of Western Australia a bauxite mine near Boddington and an alumina refinery near Collie ("Worsley Alumina Project"). The project has a production capacity of 4.6 million tons of alumina per year. Having started production in 1984, the project is said to lead the world in price competitiveness through large-scale integrated production while leveraging the rich reserves of high-quality bauxite

  • Mining and Refining Process World Aluminium

    Mining and Refining Process Aluminium is the most abundant metal in the earth’s crust. The aluminium-containing bauxite ores gibbsite, böhmite and diaspore are the basic raw material for primary aluminium production. Proven, economically viable reserves of bauxite are sufficient to supply at least another 100 years at current demand.

  • Mining and Refining Energy Efficiency

    Bauxite mining requires relatively low energy inputs, compared to other steps in the aluminium production process with less than 1.5 kilograms of fuel oil (mainly in the form of diesel for haul trucks) and less than 5 kWh of electricity consumed per tonne of bauxite extracted. The bauxite refining process requires significantly higher energy, primarily in the form of heat and steam; natural gas, coal

  • Bauxite in Jamaica Geo for CXC

    Bauxite is the ore from which aluminium is made. Jamaica contains some of the largest known deposits of bauxite in the world. The mining areas are located in the western and central parts of the island. After mining, most of the bauxite is carried to alumina plants where it is refined into alumina. The alumina (or in some cases unrefined bauxite) is carried to export ports by rail. Most of Jamaica’s bauxite is refined into alumina

    Exposures to bauxite dust, alumina dust, and caustic mist in contemporary best-practice bauxite mining and alumina refining operations have not been demonstrated to be associated with clinically significant decrements in lung function. Exposures to bauxite dust and alumina dust at such operations are also not associated with the incidence of cancer. Conclusions: A range of occupational health risks in bauxite

  • Radiological Assessment for Bauxite Mining and Alumina

    Given that the processes involved in bauxite mining and alumina refining are generally quite similar from one operation to the next and that the positional and personal dose results were conservatively based on an assumed exposure of 1920 hours per year, differences in exposures due to differing jobs/tasks or working hours at other operations are likely to be less important than differences in activity levels.
