However, the material which is highest in aluminum and most free from objectionable impurities is bauxite which, therefore, is practically the only source of the metal under present processes. Bauxite is the general name given to the hydrated oxides of aluminum. It contains varying amounts of,Alumina: Filtration in the alumina production process,,Jun 18, 2010· The normal production route taken is to refine the bauxite to aluminium oxide, or alumina [Al2O3], which is a white, crystalline powder. This powder is then smelted to form aluminium metal. As a general rule, four tonnes of dried bauxite is required to produce two tonnes of alumina, which in turn provides one tonne of primary aluminium metal.
