Inert anode technology for aluminium

"Final energy consumption in the global aluminum industry in 2007 was estimated to be 93 Mtoe. The industry is highly electricity-intensive. Primary aluminum smelters used just over 50 Mtoe of electricity in 2007, equivalent to about 4% of global electricity consumption. In total, the aluminum industry emits 0.4 Gt CO2-equivalent of greenhouse gases, including process emissions and indirect

Preliminary studies of airborne particulate emmisions from

smelter particulate emissions and their environmental fate. Numerous studies have shown that the main factors in controlling the bioavailability of components from smelter particulates are mineralogical and chemical form and particle size (e.g., Rieuwerts and Farago, 1995; Spear et al., 1998; Williamson, 2001). The chemistry and mineralogy of airborne particulates largely determines particle

Carbon Footprint of Aluminum Production:

Carbon footprint of aluminum production showed that emission during the process accounts for ∼1.0% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and primary aluminum production augments a significant contribution to it. There are certain mitigation strategies such as reformation of conventional technologies in aluminum production, recycling of waste aluminum products, and carbon trading to alleviate

12.1 Primary Aluminum Production - US EPA

Primary aluminum production begins with the mining of bauxite ore, a hydrated oxide of aluminum consisting of 30 to 56 percent alumina Potential sources of fugitive particulate emissions in the primary aluminum industry are bauxite grinding, materials handling, anode baking, and the 3 types of reduction cells (see Table 12.1-1). These fugitive emissions probably have particulate size

Particulate Matter (PM) Basics | Particulate

Particulate matter contains microscopic solids or liquid droplets that are so small that they can be inhaled and cause serious health problems. Some particles less than 10 micrometers in diameter can get deep into your lungs and some may even get into your bloodstream. Of these, particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter, also known as fine particles or PM

Characterizing emissions from a Söderberg

This article describes the results of studies conducted to analyze the fine (<10 μm) particulate matter, the extractable organic matter, and the hydrocarbon compounds emitted from Kaiser's horizontal-stud Söderberg aluminum smelter in Tacoma, Washington. To perform the characterization, samples were taken from representative potroom roof and air-control-system emissions.
