Ashapura is a major global player in the field of Bauxite & Aluminous Laterite. In these products, the Company has established strong presence in countries such as India, China, USA, Azerbaijan, France, UAE, and Ukraine.

Bauxite 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 Bauxite.

The 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).

About 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 other applications.

Aluminium 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.

Advantages of Ashapura Bauxite
   
Ashapura bauxite is major of Gibbsitic which requires low digestion temperature (145 °C -155 °C) which makes it more economical to process.
Ashapura has huge bauxite mineral resources/reserves in India and overseas which will be sufficient to cater to the market demand for several decades.
Ashapura mines are in close proximity to all-weather ports and this is further complemented by its own fleet of ships and impeccable logistics.
Abundance of labour force at reasonable cost in comparison with other parts of the world makes our operation unique and cost-effective.
Our in-house R&D Centre and Q&A laboratories conduct Chemical, Mineralogical and Metallurgical evaluation of the Bauxite to ensure consistency and meet stringent specifications as desired by the customers.
Access to the best technologies to produce value added Bauxite products like Calcined Bauxite, white fuse Alumina, Brown Fuse Alumina and Alumina.
We have strong dedicated team of professionals working round the clock with sophisticated laboratories/facilities to meet the International Standard for Quality, Management & Environment Management System in Mining, Processing, Logistics and Export.
   
Port Facility
