Bauxite Residue Valorisation and Best Practices

The symposium structure consists of keynote presentations (40 minutes), oral presentations (20 minutes) and oral presentations of posters (3 minutes)

The conference aspires to cover the whole chain of bauxite residue, from production to applications. In detail, the themes as structured in the program are:

From bauxite to a modified bauxite residue: additions and process modifications leading to a more attractive bauxite residue for downstream use

Neutralisation, revegetation and beyond: from actions to reduce alkalinity all the way to restoration of fauna and flora in former disposal sites

Recovery of Fe, Al, Ti: being the metals with the highest concentration in bauxite residue, the session will cover processes to recover them

Recovery of minor elements and REE: focus is now placed on minor metals and REE that can have a substantial impact on the economic viability of the processes

Cement, concrete and inorganic polymers: with production volumes in the range of billion metric tons annually, these materials can incorporate substantial volumes

Ceramics: from clay based ceramics to more sophisticated ceramics with engineered properties

Other novel applications: catalysis, polymer composites, adsorbents and many more applications that go beyond the usual paths while offering new possibilities
