Virotec has been an innovator in environmental science and industrial sustainability since 2000. This book documents some of the published research on the technological developments introduced by Virotec in the 16 years since its inception. These developments have been mostly linked to the modification and beneficial reuse of alumina refinery residue (ARR), first articulated to Virotec in 1999 by the late Dr David McConchie and his research team at Southern Cross University in New South Wales. Except Chapters Ten and Fourteen, which deploy ozofractionation, every chapter in this book utilizes the unique chemical and physical properties of modified ARR, making this book a valuable source document for those interested in ARR beneficiation, industrial sustainability and their relation to environmental science.
