In the authors' opinion, it is not likely that there will soon be an alternative to the Hall-Héroult process for making primary aluminium. The energy consumption in the traditional process is steadily decreasing, and there is still more room for improvement. The present paper discusses some opp...

The current efficiency (CE) in aluminium cells is governed by transport of dissolved metal (mainly sodium) across the boundary layer at the cathode. The transport takes place by ordinary mass transfer, but since solutions of alkali metals and their salts show electronic conductivity, the CE is also ...

Silicon nitride bonded silicon carbide is currently the most common type of sidelining material in aluminium electrolysis cells. The material has replaced carbon due to better chemical resistance, better oxidation resistance, and better thermal performance, which opens for increased productivity. To...

The physical properties and the behaviour of the refractory linings used in aluminium electrolysis cells and in anode baking furnaces are crucial for economic as well as environmental aspects of the aluminium production. This course will give an introduction to the physical and thermal properties of...
