Aluminum is the third most abundant element in the earth’s crust after oxygen and silicon, and appears in its oxidized form. Alumina (Al2O3), which is derived from bauxite – a natural mineral consisting of hydrated forms of aluminum oxide associated with small amounts of oxides of iron, silicon and titanium and trace amounts of other elements, is electrolyzed and gives aluminum metal.
Anodes are large carbon blocks which are used to conduct electricity during the aluminium reduction process. As they do so they are consumed, at a rate of around 450 kg per tonne of aluminium produced. The two families of smelting technology in operation today – S?derberg and prebake – are characterised by the types of anode employed.
The global pre-baked anode production, which measures output worldwide, was expected to reach xx thousand tons in 2016 with an increase of xx% from its year-earlier level. The global pre-baked anode market size is estimated to decrease from USD xx million in 2011 to USD xx million by 2016, at an estimated CAGR of xx% between 2011 and 2016.
