Acid transformation of bauxite residue: Conversion of its alkaline characteristics

Article English OPEN
Kong, X. ; Li, M. ; Xue, S. ; Hartley, W. ; Chen, C. ; Wu, C. ; Li, X. ; Li, Y. (2016)

Bauxite residue (BR) is a highly alkaline solid hazardous waste produced from bauxite processing for alumina production. Alkaline transformation appears to reduce the environmental risk of bauxite residue disposal areas (BRDAs) whilst potentially providing opportunities... View more
