Aluminous Laterite. In these products, the Company has
established strong presence in countries such as India,
China, USA, Azerbaijan, France, UAE, and Ukraine.
is a soft, whitish to reddish-brown rock consisting
mainly of hydrous aluminum oxides and aluminum hydroxides
along with silica, silt, iron hydroxides, and clay minerals.
Bauxite is a major source of aluminium. Bauxite is a
raw material consisting mainly of alumina-bearing hydroxides,
oxides of iron, silicon and titanium with impurities
of Ca, Mg, Cr, V, P, Ga and other elements. Basic alumina
containing minerals of bauxites are gibbsite Al(OH)3,
Boehmite g-AlO(OH) and Diaspore a-AlO(OH). Besides,
bauxite contain minerals of iron: hematite a-Fe2O3,
goethite a-FeO(OH), silica as quartz a-SiO2 and Kaolinite
Al2[Si2O5](OH)4, Titanium Dioxide as Anatase and Rutile.
Carbonates of Ca & Mg, Sulphur, impurities of organic
substances are also present in smaller quantities in
processing of these bauxites is done at a number of
alumina refineries in the world. Ashapura bauxites can
be processed at a low-temperature autoclave digestion
(145 ºC to 155 ºC). They can be used also
for sweetening stage and for non-autoclave digestion
in agitators (105 ºC).
85% of bauxite mined worldwide is used to produce alumina
for refining into Aluminium metal and 15% of bauxite
goes into refractory, chemical, cement, abrasives and
is possibly the most versatile product with applications
in almost every industry. Since bauxite is the primary
source for Aluminium it will always be in great demand.
of Ashapura Bauxite
bauxite is major of Gibbsitic which requires low
digestion temperature (145 °C -155 °C)
which makes it more economical to process.
has huge bauxite mineral resources/reserves in
India and overseas which will be sufficient to
cater to the market demand for several decades.
mines are in close proximity to all-weather ports
and this is further complemented by its own fleet
of ships and impeccable logistics.
