What Is Aluminum Smelting? - Clinton Aluminum

Sep 21, 2018  Smelting is a crucial step in aluminum extraction, and without it, it would be extremely difficult to access aluminum in the first place, let alone use it as a building or commercial material. This is because while aluminum is the third most abundant element following oxygen and silicon in the Earth’s crust, it is actually rarely found ...
