The catalog of Industrial Process Profiles for Environmental Use was developed as an aid in defining the environmental impacts of industrial activity in the United States. Entries for each industry are in consistent format and form separate chapters of the study. The primary aluminum industry as defined for this study consists of processing bauxite ore to produce alumina and occasionally aluminum hydroxide and processing alumina to produce aluminum. The two main industry segments are bauxite processing to alumina and alumina processing to aluminum. These distinct and separate processes are not usually performed at the same site. A third industry segment electrode preparation is accomplished at the aluminum production site. Three industrial process flow sheets and nine process descriptions have been prepared to characterize the industry. Within each process description available data have been presented on input materials, operating parameters, utility requirements and waste streams. Data related to the subject matter including feedstock characteristics, and company/product listings are included as appendices.
