Red Mud Utilisation
Red Mud –the waste generated from alumina plants is a tough complex and mixture of several
oxides posing a threat to environment apart from causing loss of resources-enormity of the
problem can be imagined from the fact that as much as 2.5 to 4 MT of such wastes are
generated per MT of Al produced. Over the years, very large quantity (2.8 Billion MT) of
such Red Mud has been accumulated throughout the world, adding 140 million MT every year.
Though several attempts have been made to solve this problem for decades, no satisfactory
solution has been found. We have developed a patented technology for recovery of all major
components of Red Mud, viz. Iron, Aluminium, Titanium by a combination of smelting, Carbo
Chlorination and molten salt electrolysis technologies.
