Electrochemical reduction of iron oxides into zero-valent iron (ZVI, Fe0) is a promising alternative to the traditional methods used for iron production. The electrochemical deposition of Fe0 from hematite and hematite-based Fe2−xAlxO3 ceramic in alkaline suspensions (10 M of NaOH) was assessed at relatively low temperature (90 °C). Ceramic compositions aimed to mimic the main components of red mud waste from the alumina refining industry for iron valorisation purposes. The impact of aluminium content on the electroreduction and microstructure of the deposited Fe0 films was demonstrated and discussed. Trapping and following the leaching of the aluminium species ...
