The aim of the Alucyc project is to develop a new process to recover metallic aluminium from aluminium dross. Comparing with available state-of-the art technologies, the yield of metallic aluminium will be increased from 95% to 99% using the new technology developed in Alucuc. Alucyc technology is waste-free, cryolite and the remaining aluminium oxcide could be used in melting of primary aluminium as additives.
To develop the Alucyc technology, a phase model, novel electro slag furnace with non-consumable electrodes and process and power control systems will be designed and integrated. By consultations of primary aluminium smelters, Alucyc technology will interest potential end users in industry and will be therefore easily exploitable.
