The carbonthermal reduction of high Mg–Si nickel laterite was studied under vacuum.

The effects of adding calcium oxide and the reducing agent on the reduction of silicon in residue were studied at pressures of 10–200 Pa and different temperatures, with varying proportions of carbon and Ca O.

The XRD pattern results showed that Mg Al phase disappeared and the main phase of the reduced sample was Ti C when the reduction temperature was higher than 1,773 K.

It could potentially reduce the energy consumption of aluminum production drastically.This thesis describe the process leading up to a new utility robot solution.
