Aluminium fluoride is used in many industrial processes. It is one of the minor constituents added to the electrolytic cells during the production of metallic aluminium. It is also used in the preparation of white enamels, as an anti-reflection coating in complex optical systems, as a constituent in welding fluxes, and in the preparation of fluorine containing glasses, Aluminium fluoride (AlF3) is an inorganic compound used primarily in the production of aluminium. This colorless solid can be prepared synthetically but also occurs in nature. It is used in the production of aluminium metal. Uses Aluminium fluoride is primarily used in the production of aluminium. It is a critical additive to the molten electrolyte in aluminium metal production. Using today's technologies, it is impossible to manufacture aluminium without AIF3. Adding AIF3 allows the electrolytic process to take place at a temperature around 850°C, which is considerably lower than the melting point for aluminium oxide (Al2O3, mp ab. 1,500°C). As a result of its temperature-lowering properties, AlF3 has a definite energy saving effect. The industrial and use categories of AlF3 are IC8, UC40 and UC43. The main use of AlF3 is as a temperature-regulating agent, a pH-regulator and as a solubility enhancer of aluminium oxide in the electrolyte solution in the production process of aluminium. The use of AlF3 as such results in a lowering of the energy consumption in the aluminium pot. The raw material (aluminium oxide) is melted and split in aluminium and oxygen. The minor downstream uses of AlF3 are for metal treatment and for optical coating as an essential component of antireflective coatings and in semiconductors. A total of 52 tonnes of AlF3 was sold to traders, for which it is also assumed that it is used for other purposes than aluminium production. As no other significant uses were reported, neither by producers nor by downstream users, it is assumed that the main application is for production of aluminium, which is in general agreement with the information provided by the producers (> 99.6% used for aluminium production). As a consequence the risk assessment will focus on this particular use. Market Survey The Indian aluminium industry’s enthusiasm to grow smelting capacity on an ambitious scale here and abroad - the wanderlust is that of Nalco - was not dimmed in any way by the adverse performance of the metal during the recession. If all projects of Hindalco get commissioned on revised schedule, then it will see smelting capacity rising to 1.7 million tonnes from 500,000 tonnes and alumina refining capacity to 6.5 million tonnes from 1.7 million tonnes by 2013. Meanwhile, Novelis acquisition has given Hindalco global leadership in that value added segment where path breaking technologies are in application. Vedanta has arrived on the Indian aluminium scene much later than Hindalco and Nalco. While it has made up for the lost time by gaining control of Balco and Madras Aluminium, Vedanta is aggressively building new capacity through greenfield and brownfield routes. Aluminium fluoride (otherwise known as aluminum trifluoride) is a crystalline powder that is slightly soluble in water. It is mainly used in the production of aluminum metal. Aluminium Fluoride is able to decrease the melting point of electrolytes in the smelting process and improve the production efficiency. It is also utilized as a flux in welding applications; in the manufacture of ceramics and glass; in the making of aluminum silicates. The aluminium fluoride industry comprises a large number of players operating the world over. Lifosa AB, South Ural Cryolite Plant OJSC, Do-Fluoride Chemicals Co. Ltd. and S. B. Chemicals are amidst the most prominent manufacturers. The electrolytic bath in an aluminium electrolysis cell contains 80% synthetic cryolite (AlF3). Operating losses of fluorine from the cell are made up almost exclusively by the addition of further AlF3. The recent global economic crisis brought to the forefront and accelerated trends in the AlF3 market which have been evident for some time. It has become even more apparent that aluminium smelting should be carried out where the producer has access to energy sources which are abundant and relatively inexpensive. Similarly AlF3, which depends more on raw materials than energy, should be manufactured where the raw materials are abundantly available at a reasonable cost. It does not matter where the customers for aluminium or AlF3 are located but it does matter where the energy and raw materials are located.
