Vedanta Commissions First Red Mud Powder Plant

Odisha: Vedanta commissioned first Red Mud Powder Plant in the World

Vedanta alumina refinery has commissioned a project of producing red mud powder which will reduce the environmental hazards of red mud.

The system, which took three years to develop, will minimize land requirement by 50 – 60% and eliminate the need for bauxite residue storage facilities.

The powder will have a caustic consumption saving of 10 – 15kg per ton of alumina and can be used in the cement and other industries.
