I make aluminium metal from dirt.
there are a lot of chemicial reactions in this video, here is a list of the main ones:
feldspar to clay;
4KAlSi3O8 + 4H+ + 2H2O = 2K+ +Al4Si4O10(OH)8 +8SiO2
clay to aluminium hydoxide and silicious acid (unbalanced);
Al4Si4O10(OH)8 + H2O + H+ = Al(OH)3 + H2SiO4
Aluminium hydroxide forming from aluminium chloride;
AlCl3 + 3 NaOH = 3 NaCl + Al(OH)3
aluminium hydroxide calcination;
2Al(OH)3 = Al2O3 + 3H2O
eletrolisis of cryolite solution (overall);
Al2O3 + 3 C = 2 Al + 3 CO
