Bauxite

Bauxite is the main raw material used in the commercial production of alumina (Al 2 O 3) and aluminium metal although some clays and other materials can be utilised to produce alumina Bauxite is a heterogeneous naturally occurring material of varying composition that is relatively rich in aluminium The principal minerals in bauxite are gibbsite (Al 2 O 3 3H 2 O) boehmite (Al 2 O 3 H 2 O) and diaspore
