Symposium Alumina & Bauxite
Presentation Title Going FAR (Floating Alumina Refinery)
Author(s) Bradley James Hogan
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Bradley James Hogan
Abstract Scope “Going FAR” is, for now, an abstract concept for a Floating Alumina Refinery. The FAR concept potentially reduces sovereign risk from politically unstable or socially fragile countries by moving to another location, protecting the majority of the refinery asset and investment. Going FAR may also provide the opportunity to process small isolated bauxite deposits where it is uneconomical to build a conventional land-based refinery. Bringing this concept to commercial reality will require outside the square thinking, and many critical questions need to be answered. What are the benefits of FAR? How do the economics compare to a traditional onshore refinery? What is the maximum refinery capacity that would be possible as a floating facility? What changes are required in technology and equipment? What are the major changes to safety and environmental risks and how will they be managed? Will the FAR design inspire innovations which have application for land-based refineries?
