The role of nano-perovskite in the negligible thorium release in seawater from Greek bauxite residue (red mud)

In the February 2016 issue of Nature magazine, you can learn more about the role of nano-perovskite in the negligible thorium release in seawater from Greek bauxite residue (red mud).

Worldwide, the refining of bauxite ore deposits to alumina through the Bayer process results in production of huge quantities of a solid metallurgical bauxite residue (BR), the so-called “red mud”. We present new data about the chemical and structural characteristics of bauxite residue (BR) from Greek Al industry, using a combination of microscopic, analytical, and spectroscopic techniques.
