“The Gladstone site enables us to be within two kilometres of Orica, who we have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with to be our supplier of key process reagents and the offtake of the by-product for the project, creating a circular economy process.
“A successful pilot plant has been operating in Brisbane, since July 2019, and using a low-cost extraction process we are producing around 3kg daily of >99.99 per cent pure alumina.
“We believe there is building global demand for our high purity alumina, with circa 70 lithium ion battery mega factories under construction across four continents to meet the electric vehicle demand.”
Alpha HPA will now negotiate final purchase terms for the land with the state government. ■
