Electricity consumption in the production of aluminium

Jul 15, 2011 According to Alcoa, the world’s largest producer of aluminium, the best smelters use about 13 kilowatt hours (46.8 megajoules) of electrical energy to produce one kilogram of aluminium; the worldwide average is closer to 15 kWh/kg (54 MJ/kg). Worldwide production of aluminium in 2010 was 41.4 million tonnes.

AA11 Boehmite Precipitation Kinetics and Calcination Study

Production of boehmite in the Bayer process would result in significant energy savings in several process steps. The process for the precipitation of boehmite (Al. 2. O. 3.H. 2. O) from a sodium aluminate liquor instead of regular gibbsite precipitation is an innovative option, where an energy consumption reduction can be achieved in calcination.

Solubility determinations on two particle sizes of crystalline gibbsite, from both undersaturation and supersaturation in the acid pH range, gave a K SO of −34.03 ± 0.05. The value for gibbsite confirms previous work on the stability of gibbsite and the new Al(OH) 4 ‐ value eliminates a discrepancy between gibbsite stabilities derived from solubility measurements in the acid and in the
