Abstract: A new technology producing high purity alumina has been developed. Initial reagents for this technology are industrial aluminum micron powder of technical purity (99.8 %) and distilled water. The core of technology is hydrothermal oxidation of aluminum, which is carried out (under about 300 °С and 15 MPa) in special reactor developed for continuous and large-scale production. Conversion degree of aluminum is 100 %. Purity of produced alumina is 99.997 %, i.e. the impurity concentration doesn’t exceed 30 ppm. Produced alumina was successfully used for the production of alumina monocrystal.
