Calcined Bauxite Through Rotary Kiln - Manufacturing Plant, Detailed Project Report, Profile, Business Plan, Industry Trends, Market Research, Survey, Manufacturing Process, Machinery, Raw Materials, Feasibility Study, Investment Opportunities

Calcined bauxite is an important raw material for two main markets: refractories and abrasives. Smaller volumes are consumed in other applications including proppants, welding fluxes, and antiskid surfaces. While the process of calcining bauxite for each of these applications is fundamentally the same (i.e. it involves the same basic burning process), the physical and chemical characteristics of each grade vary. Calcined bauxites are classified by their major end uses abrasives and refractories. Target properties are dictated by application and processing requirements. The chemical and physical properties of premium grade calcined bauxites are far more stringent than metallurgical bauxite and this limits its sources and availability. Premium grade calcined bauxites are considered to be strategically critical to the industrialized countries of the world. Subject to disruptions in the key source countries, adequate supplies of premium grade calcined bauxites are anticipated in the foreseeable future. Only a handful of countries produce non metallurgical grade bauxite and not all these sources produce material suitable for certain calcined bauxite applications. Total world reserves of bauxite are estimated at 25m. tonnes. In terms of annual output, non metallurgical bauxite accounts for only 15% of world bauxite mine production capacity and total raw non metallurgical production, calcined bauxite accounts for about 70%. Uses & Application The most important use of bauxite is in metallurgical industry i.e., manufacturing of aluminium. But, it has a few non metallurgical uses also. In most of the uses, however, the products are based on an intermediate product namely, alumina which is made directly from bauxite Market Survey A possible new supplier to the international calcined bauxite markets may be India. India currently imports 40 to 60% (about 100,000 tpa) of its calcined bauxite requirements from China. Spurred by expansion of domestic steel production, a scarcity of acceptable quality of bauxite from China, and rising import costs, drives are now underway in India to produce high grade bauxite from domestic bauxite sources. At present, India is a very minor producer of non metallurgical bauxite, despite having occurrences of high grade bauxite in west coast and central India. This is attributed to limited efforts to test high grade bauxite occurrences in regions outside the main bauxite producing area around Gujarat, and Limited R&D and technology for calcining bauxite. In terms of costs and availability, bauxite in the region is well placed compared to other types of bauxite. The pit head cost of typical bauxite in the mine here works out to be less than $5/tonne. Already, an attempt has been made to produce value added non metallurgical bauxite by de ironing the bauxite by acid leaching. Salient results are encouraging. At Gujarat/ Bhuj in western India, among the larger alumina grade reserves, there is a small quantity (2 to 3m. tonnes) of a marginal grade of 85% Al2O3 refractory grade bauxite Financials & Comparison of Major Players/Companies Bombay Minerals Ltd.
