The basic idea of this study is to utilize alumina tryhidratfrom bauxite ore made by Antam’s subsidiary to have more added value.In carrying out this feasibility study four aspects were discussed; marketing, technical especially location, and financial aspect. Study on marketing aspect consists of study on product, price, distribution, promotion, and end users in Indonesia. Study on technical aspect consists of study on production process, production equipment, and lay out. Study on location aspect is to find best location for its project.
