This case is based on a typical samples of high-silica bauxite from Shanxi, China. The production line has a capacity of 450,000 tons of alumina per year.
In the table below, the far-left column is the compared items, the column in the middle shows the outcomes of the typical Bayer Process, and the far right column lists the IB2 tech-driven process;
According to the results of the comparison, IB2 technology can significantly reduce raw material consumption. This advantage has resulted in a significant reduction in red mud discharge. In addition, the by produced high-grade calcium silicate can become a key raw material in other industries .
