Red mud is a waste material generated at aluminum refinery in the whole world. It is produced in alumina production from bauxite in the Bayer procedure. The production of red mud depends on the raw material processed, generally,1-2.5 tons of red mud will be produced from3-5tonsofbauxitetoproduce1ton of alumina. Most alumina refineries have the problem of disposal of red mud as it has high PH and alkaline in nature. The red mud will be prepared as semi-dry or dry material in bauxite mines. The untreated red mudhashigh PH(usually 11-13) that plant developmentwill be difficult and this poses very disturbing &serious environmental issues. After many studies of a research paper, it has been found that the red mud has cementations properties that may use as cementations material.
