AlSiCal is an ambitious research and innovation effort to make the mineral and metal industry more sustainable and environmentally sound. The project will further research, develop and de-risk a ground-breaking concept: the patented Aranda-Mastin technology. By integrating CO2 capture, this technology enables the co-production of three essential raw materials (alumina, silica and precipitated calcium carbonate), using new resources – e.g. anorthosite, abundantly available worldwide – whilst generating ZERO Bauxite residue and ZERO carbon dioxide (CO2) from production.
Researching, developing and de-risking the Aranda-Mastin Technology for the green co-production of three essential raw materials in a single process from one source. One source, one location, one process.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 820911.Read more about the project
