Where Does Aluminum Come from?

Answer

Aluminium is a silver-white metal that is very light in weight but relatively strong. It is obtained from ore bauxite where bauxite is first mined from typically shallow deposits and after that it is refined into alumina with the use of Bayer process at an alumina refinery. Alumina is then sent to an aluminium smelter where it is subjected to electrolysis which divides out the aluminium metal.
