Confirmation seminar presented by Amrit Ranabhat.

Excess water in red mud slurry reduces tailings storage facility's strength and storage capacity.  Exploration of optimised methods for dewatering red mud is of utmost importance. This research aims to evaluate the efficiency of various combinations of physical and chemical methods of dewatering such as amphirolling, addition of fly-ash and flocculation, filtration and repulping, and acid or seawater neutralisation.
