How Bauxite Is Changed To Aluminium

In an alumina refinery bauxite is processed into pure aluminium oxide alumina or Al 2 O 3 which is the main raw material required for production of primary aluminium. The Bayer process extracts alumina by caustic digestion of crushed bauxite at high temperature and pressure in an autoclave followed by clarification precipitation washing
