Aluminium- From Cola Cans to Bicycles, Foil to Windows, Cooking Pans to Aircraft, Aluminium is key to our everyday lives. Aluminium is non-corrosive and 100% recyclable, over and over again, without any loss of its natural properties. It can help save trees by replacing wood in construction, interiors and furniture. Light, durable and flexible, Aluminium contributes to the basics of life.
The chief source of Aluminium is bauxite ore. Interestingly, Aluminium is the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust, and the third most abundant element. The estimated reserves of bauxite in India are 2.9 billion tonnes and Orissa has over 50% of India's bauxite reserves.
Vedanta Aluminium Ltd. is involved in the business of this fundamental metal. The Vedanta Alumina Refinery at Lanjigarh is operative in the state of Orissa in India. It is the first Alumina Refinery in India to adopt the Zero Discharge System.
