About this Book
A rich collection of insightful papers and photos gathered from the world's top aluminum companies highlight the important developments in the process metallurgy of aluminum from 1886-1986, including the electrolytic method of making aluminum, emission and waste control measures in plant operations, manufacture of carbon electrodes, methods of processing bauxite and alumina, technology for melting and casting process ingots, and processes for reclamation and recycling. Following the growth of the aluminum industry from infant to giant, this book features insight into the lives of Charles Hall and Paul HTroult, who devised a method of aluminum production that would revolutionize the industry, as well as descriptions of developments in technology, equipment, and practice in the various areas of aluminum process metallurgy.
