Many sites i have visited on the Internet have provided me with the information regarding electrolysis of aluminium, however, each site has not offered me information on the environmental and social implications involved in the process. Many sites also contradicted each other regarding the harms to the environment(these may have been promotional sites). I am seeking information regarding the environmental implications only, and i am finding it to be quite difficult. How does the mining of bauxite effect the environment, how does the cost and energy requirements effect society, what is the cost and energy involved in electrolysis of aluminium and how does this effect the community??? any assistance to ease my confusion would be greatly appreciated.
