Journal Article
Jarvis, A., Manning, D., Burke, I., Gruiz, K., Renforth, P., & Mayes, W. (2012). Contaminant mobility and carbon sequestration downstream of the Ajka (Hungary) red mud spill : the effects of gypsum dosing. The Science of the total environment, 421-422, 253 - 259. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2012.01.046

A number of emergency pollution management measures were enacted after the accidental release of caustic bauxite processing residue that occurred in Ajka, western Hungary in October, 2010. These centred on acid and gypsum dosing to reduce pH and mini... Read More
