Various aluminum-smelting by-products from three production sources were receivedand characterized. The waste materials were tested for compound identification andenvironmental acceptance. A coarse metallic aluminum recovery test using an EddyCurrent separator ECS was performed using two different Circuit configurations. Whitedross performed equally well with either Circuit, while black dross processing showssignificant difference on the separation results. It was found that ECS technology waseffective for particle sizes down to 6-10 mesh.
