Alcan's Port-Alfred harbour facilities and the Roberval-Saguenay railway services facilitate the transportation of bauxite to Vaudreuil where grinding and milling followed by chemical digestion, decantation, filtration and precipitation will enable the extraction of alumina trihydrate from bauxite, This is followed by calcination: first, the alumina trihydrate is dried so as to remove free water; second, dehydration at 600 [degrees] C breaks up the water molecules which would still be chemically bound to alumina; finally, recrystallization at 1000 [degrees] C enables the transformation of the dehydrated alumina into a crystalline form which is better suited for electrolysis.
