  • Energy needed to produce aluminum

    Aug 16, 2012After alumina is extracted from bauxite ore, further processing called 'smelting' is necessary to convert it into aluminum. In this process, alumina is dissolved in a solution and a strong electric current is applied. This process has generally remained unchanged since its invention in 1886.

  • Primary Metal Production

    Molten metals tend to dissolve impurities from the ore. For example, many ores that contain native copper have arsenic compounds associated with them. When the ore is melted, the molten copper dissolves the arsenic. As a result, the metal from the furnace can be less pure than the individual metal grains that were originally in the ground.

  • Ancient Metallurgy

    Metallurgy is the process of working metal into artifacts (tools and toys). Although small amounts of metals are found in relatively pure form, most must be extracted from more complex ores by removing the impurities (non-metal or other metal) from the combination ore.
