Bauxite residue is a solid, highly alkaline byproduct generated in the alumina refining process. The process that forms the fine white salt deposits on the surface of bauxite residue disposal areas (BRDAs) following prolonged dry periods, and which also forms on products made from reused residues (sintered bricks, etc.), is known as efflorescence.

Mining and Refining – Bauxite Residue Management

It is primarily composed of the insoluble fraction of the bauxite ore that remains after extraction of the aluminium-containing components. Iron oxides (10 – 30%), titanium dioxide (2 – 15%), silicon oxide (5 – 20%) and undissolved alumina (0 – 20%) make up the residue, together with a wide range of other oxides which will vary according to the initial bauxite source.
