Magnesium: current and alternative production routes

Magnesium is a light metal that used in structural applications, and also used as additive in chemical and metallurgical industries. The current dominant route for producing magnesium is via the Pidgeon process, a batch pyrometallurgical route that is energy-intensive and has

Complete information on the Production of Dolomite in India

When limestone contains over 45 per cent of magnesium (MgCO) it is called dolomite. Eco­nomic uses of dolomite are mainly metallurgical, as refractoriness (in iron, lead and copper smelting fur­naces), as blast-furnace flux, as a source of CO2 gas and magnesium salt, as lime-mortars and other mi­nor uses.

Magnesium Statistics and Information

Although magnesium is found in over 60 minerals, only dolomite, magnesite, brucite, carnallite, and olivine are of commercial importance. Magnesium and other magnesium compounds are also produced from seawater, well and lake brines and bitterns.

How Is Magnesium Metal Produced?

Nov 24, 2019 · When dolomite is crushed, roasted and mixed with seawater in large tanks, magnesium hydroxide settles to the bottom. Heating, mixing in coke, and reacting with chlorine, then produces molten magnesium chloride. This can be electrolyzed, releasing magnesium, which floats to the surface.

Solved: In The Pigeon Process For The Production Of Magnes ...

In the Pigeon process for the production of magnesium, dolomite (CaO middot MgO) is reduced by silicon to form magnesium vapor and 2CaO middot SiO_2. Calculate the equilibrium pressure of magnesium vapor produced by this reaction at 1200 degree C. The Gibbs free energy of formation of dolomite from CaO and MgO is small enough that it can be ignored.

(a) Conversion of dolomite by calcination to "dolime", a mixture of MgO and CaO. This step, carried out at 1573 K, is highly endothermic, and releases CO2 both from the reaction itself and from the fuel combusted for process heat: (b) The production of the alloy ferrosilicon for the reduction of dolime.

Dolomite: A sedimentary rock known as dolostone or ...

Dolomite is thought to form when the calcite (CaCO 3) in carbonate mud or limestone is modified by magnesium-rich groundwater. The available magnesium facilitates the conversion of calcite into dolomite (CaMg(CO 3) 2). This chemical change is known as "dolomitization."
