These papers are based on presentations prepared for the 2007 Alumina and Bauxite symposium. The original symposium description is as follows: "The Alumina and Bauxite Symposium, along with Cast Shop Technology, Aluminum Reduction Technology, Electrode Technology, Recycling Technology, and Reactive Metals, collectively form the Light Metals Symposium, where experts from the Light Metals Industry and academia from all over the world meet each other and share information. You are invited to submit papers in the following subject areas: Bayer Process: Fundamentals, Chemistry, Operational Improvements and Experiences; Design, Operations and Maintenance for Plant Integrity and Safety, and Environment with focus on Residues; Bauxite Mining; Process Control; Analytical Methods; Design of Refineries for Sustainability and Lowest Capital and Operating Costs."
