(MENAFN) According to data released by the Iranian Mines and Mining Industries Development and Renovation Organization (IMIDRO), Iran has produced 206,887 tons of alumina powder during the first 11 months of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21, 2022-February 19, 2023). This figure demonstrates a two percent decrease compared to the output produced in the 11-month period of the previous year, which was 211,499 tons.
Aluminum oxide, commonly known as alumina, is an odorless, white, amorphous material that is extensively used in industrial ceramics. Alumina is an essential ceramic material for industrial applications, including construction materials, filling materials, abrasives, and catalysts. In plants and mechanical engineering, alumina ceramics are primarily utilized for wear and corrosion protection.
The particle size distribution of alumina powder considerably determines its application range and quality. Therefore, accurately identifying particle size differences is an essential requirement of the measuring instrument.
Due to the importance of alumina, its production plays a significant role in the Iranian economy. The country has implemented numerous policies to increase production capacity and improve the quality of alumina powder. Iran has vast reserves of bauxite, the primary raw material used in the production of alumina, which gives the country a competitive advantage in the global alumina market.
However, the decline in alumina powder production in the current Iranian calendar year compared to the previous year may be attributed to various factors, including changes in market demand, fluctuations in global aluminum prices, and supply chain disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Despite the challenges, Iran remains committed to the development of its alumina industry. The country's alumina powder production is expected to rebound as the global market recovers from the pandemic, and the government continues to invest in the industry's growth.
In conclusion, the production of alumina powder is a vital segment of Iran's economy. The country's policies to enhance production capacity and improve product quality indicate its commitment to the industry's advancement. As the global market recovers, Iran's alumina powder production is expected to grow, contributing to the country's economic growth and development.
