Abstract

There has been increased interest in the U. S. in developing the technology to recover aluminum from non-bauxite sources stemming from a need to develop domestic aluminum sources. This article briefly reviews the alternative methods for recovering aluminum, and then discusses in some detail one of these: the carbochlorination of plagioclase which can be recovered as a byproduct from the tailings of copper-nickel processing. Experimental results of the present research on the carbochlorination of plagioclase are presented along with some comments on a possible commercial process.
