We report the development of a process allowing the selective, sustainable recovery of scandium (Sc) with 75% efficiency from Jamaican bauxite residue (red mud), a waste product from aluminum production. The process design is inspired by green chemistry principles and focuses on establishing highly selective process steps (sulfation, leaching, and precipitation) in order to minimize costs and
The Bayer process is the principal industrial means of refining bauxite to produce alumina and was developed by Carl Josef Bayer. Bauxite, the most important ore of aluminium, contains only 3060% aluminium oxide, the rest being a mixture of silica, various iron oxides, and titanium dioxide. The aluminium oxide must be purified before it can be refined to aluminium metal.
The Bayer Process is the most economic means of obtaining alumina from bauxite. Other processes for obtaining alumina from metal ores are also in use in some refineries, particularly in China and Russia, although these make up a relatively small percentage of global production.
Bauxite / Alumina Refineries Cogeneration (CHP) Increase Generation to Grid from 138 MW to 354MW Efficiency of 75% 85% to be improved to greater than 90% Improved Efficiency in the Electricity and Bauxite/Alumina Sectors will result in reduced energy intensity of the country. 3/8/2010 Ministry of Energy and Mining, Jamaica 13

Efficient and Complete Exploitation of the Bauxite Residue Proceedings of EMC 2011 749 adjust the properties of the produced slag. This mixture is feed into the AMRT EAF where the raw materials undergo reductive smelting and are transformed in three
Bauxite digestion is the process of extracting the alumina present in ore through a chemical reaction with a caustic liquor containing caustic soda (known as Bayer liquor). This reaction takes place in reactors called digesters or autoclaves under high pressure and at a temperature of 145C (294.8F).
Bauxite tailings are produced during the Bayer Process which is the most commonly used method of refining bauxite to aluminum oxide. Estimates indicated that roughly 95% of the aluminum oxide produced in the world was made through the Bayer Process. After the bauxite ore is extracted from mines, it is taken to a plant where it is refined.

The Bayer Process for the production of alumina from Bauxite ore is characterized by low exergy efficiency and it results in the production of significant amounts of dust like, high alkalinity bauxite residues known as red mud. Currently red mud is produced almost at 1 to 1 mass ratio to metallur
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.
Bauxite crusher machine In the bauxite crushing process, bauxite crusher is used to crush bauxite ore into small particles. Usually, there are there stages of Magnetic Separating Process is one kind of efficient equipment in the induetries like resource recovery. Process Flow Of Artificial Sand Production.
The production of aluminum from bauxite is a two step process refining bauxite to obtain alumina and smelting alumina to produce aluminum. Bauxite contains a number of impurities, including iron oxide, silica, and titania. If these impurities are not removed during refining, they will alloy with and contaminate the metal during the smelting
