The clarified liquor is concentrated and the alumina precipitated by seeding with hydrate. The precipitated alumina is then filtered, washed and calcined to give the product. 95:1. The smelting of the aluminium is generally by electrolysis in molten cryolite. Because of the high consumption of electricity by the smelting process, alumina is usually smelted in areas where low-cost electricity is available. However, most of the electricity now used in primary smelting in the Western world is generated by hydroelectricity—a renewable energy source.
From sales of alumina and $A3,900m. from sales of aluminium ingots. New Zealand has a single aluminium smelter, commissioned in 1971 at Tiwai Point, near Invercargill, South Island. The plant is controlled by a subsidiary of the Australian company Comalco. A major expansion of the smelter was completed in 1996, increasing capacity to 313,000 tons of primary aluminium per year. In the late 1990s more than 90% of the smelter’s production was exported. India has the world’s sixth-largest bauxite reserves, estimated to be at least 1,400m.
2m. tons. The USA normally accounts for about one-third of total aluminium consumption (excluding communist and former communist countries). Although it is the world’s principal producing country (accounting for about 15% of global output of primary aluminium in 2000), the USA does not produce a surplus of ingots, and limits production to satisfy its domestic requirements for fabrication, while importing the remainder from low-cost producers elsewhere. The USA produces a very small amount of bauxite for domestic use.
