Solar thermal energy for lowering emissions in alumina production

Solar thermal energy

Our researchers have found that introducing concentrating solar thermal (CST) technologies to the Bayer alumina process could enable a 29-45% solar share.  This would displace the need for natural gas and decrease operating fuel costs.
