FROM A RED PROBLEM TO A GREEN SOLUTION
- ParaTech Global is an environmental remediation company based on a proved patent to process “Red Mud” (RM) or spent bauxite, which is disposed of openly next to alumina refineries at every plant in the world.
- Red Mud contains sodium hydroxide which is a dangerous caustic.
- With a pH of 13, any extended exposure to this material can be life threatening.
- ParaTech is able to stabilize Red Mud for recycling by chemically lowering the pH and recovering all the sodium hydroxide and aluminum hydroxide from it. What remains is Stabilized Bauxite Residue, which may directly be used as an ingredient in ceramic/cement building materials and as a filtration media to recover pollutants from mine waste, lakes and rivers.
- The ParaTech process makes alumina refining fully sustainable.
- With patents in 18 countries, our process is the only commercially viable Red Mud (RM) remediation process in the world.

The ParaTech patented process was recently presented and evaluated at the Ajka, Hungary alumina refinery using the ParaTech pilot plant. A well-known chemical testing company, Analitika, evaluated the processed red mud and brine, leading to their conclusion that the red mud stabilized to a neutral pH and the brine exhibited the predicted chemical composition.
