The alumina industry is currently experiencing a number of changes. Market volatility and increased scrutiny from the public and governments concerning safety, health and the environment are requiring new approaches to mining. The challenges of market volatility have led refineries to seek further improvements to operational efficiency and cost position.


New government regulations also dictate that refineries act more sustainably by reducing energy consumption, carbon and dust emissions, effluent discharge and waste disposal. These requirements add another layer of complexity to alumina processing and often result in increased production costs for operators.


As the alumina industry’s partner of choice, Solvay provides refinery operators with breakthrough technologies, a full suite of products for the Bayer process, and the global applications expertise needed to help them achieve greater profitability and reduce their environmental footprint.
