Bauxite, Alumina and Aluminum – Mining, Refining and Processing

Fluor offers integrated solutions for all stages of aluminum production, from bauxite mining, through alumina refining to aluminum processing facilities.

Bauxite Mining

Development of bauxite resources often takes place in challenging locations around the world. Fluor's involvement in bauxite projects has taken teams to rain forests, deserts and tropical islands.

In each setting, Fluor brings mine infrastructure, material handling and bauxite-processing expertise to the projects to develop safe and cost effective approaches to meet clients' strategic resource needs. During front-end study development, we can support sound business decisions regarding mobilization strategies, mine infrastructure requirements, crush / screen / dry process options, as well as options related to conveyor, rail or truck delivery of bauxite to the refinery or port location.

In addition, Fluor has experienced resources for dealing with port development and ship loading designs that are cost effective and safely operable. Our experienced people, management, work processes and support systems have earned the company a reputation of successful project delivery and certainty for our clients.

Alumina Refining

Fluor has extensive global experience designing and building alumina refineries. Fluor is technology neutral, allowing us to work and partner effectively with the provider that has the most efficient solution for the desired process.

We deliver value to our clients through our life-cycle design capability with consideration of both capital and operating costs. Fluor's reputation of delivering well-executed construction projects within baseline expectations is one of Fluor's trademarks.

Aluminum Processing Facilities

Fluor's aluminum experience covers the full vertical value chain from smelting to downstream processes.

Fluor has successfully completed front-end engineering and design (FEED), project management consulting (PMC) and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) projects in global locations such as Saudi Arabia and Australia, as well as in North America.
