Meaning of ALUMINUM PRODUCTION in English


Aluminum metal is produced by electrolysis of aluminum oxide dissolved in a high-temperature molten-salt electrolyte. Aluminum is deposited as a liquid metal on the cathode of the electrolytic cell (the aluminum cations are reduced to liquid metal). This is the only large-scale industrial process for the production of aluminum. See also an Encyclopedia Article.
