Cathodes failure in Vedanta

The Light Metals Research Centre (LMRC) has just finished a project in Jharsuguda, India helping Vedanta to solve a costly problem of high rate of early reduction cell failure in their aluminium smelter in Jharsuguda. This was a swift operation due to the urgency of the project. In an intensive week of work (including weekend), Dr Ron Etzion and Emeritus professor Barry Welch with the help of the local Vedanta team, who worked around the clock, identified the root causes of the problem following an intensive analysis of the failed cells. The results of this work will help Vedanta to reduce or even eliminate the early failure of its reduction cells,and improve the performance of the entire smelter.
