The US is anticipated to be the foremost market in the region due to the easy obtainability of raw materials and their growing preference in industries owing to superior properties

Recent Developments

September 2021 - Alcoa Corporation is all set to make its presence felt in the expanding high-purity alumina market, with the aim to leverage the mounting preference for sustainable products via a joint development project. Alcoa of Australia Limited is subsidiary of Alcoa Corporation has developed a binding term sheet with FYI Resources Ltd (Western Australia) for manufacturing activities related to high-purity alumina.AoA owns about 65 percent interest of the project, which is expected to have development stages before the completion in 2024, of 8,000 metric-ton-per-year HPA plant. The development activities will further facilitate a joint venture in the future, with AoA being the manager while both the parties contributing certain intellectual property.September 2021-Garibaldi Resources Corporation has entered an agreement with Alumina Partners Ltd. to supply close to USD 12 million CDN for a 3 years period in line with an equity financing facility. Alumina Partners is Alumina Partners LLC’s affiliate, which is a New York-based private equity firm.Dec 2020 Altech Chemicals has confirmed the stipulations of a staggered €5 million deal of a 25 % interest in German subsidiary, Altech Industries Germany to Frankfurt Stock Exchange-listed Altech Advanced Materials. Altech, who retains possession of the other 75 % of AIG, reveals it has expected the initial cash payment of €250,000 under the terms of the arranged deal. The annual deferred expenditures of €1.58 million, commencement on the anniversary of the first up-front cash compensation, will be completed by AMM over the next three years, with an additional 3% interest to be compensated quarterly on the outstanding amounts. AAM also has the choice to pay the unresolved deferred consideration in full at any time without disadvantage.

Dec 2020 FYI Resources Ltd., an Australian resource firm, has arrived into a collaboration with Alcoa of Australia to track a pilot at FYI's high-purity alumina (HPA) yard in Western Australia. FYI stated that the trial would be around the clock facility that would trial its exclusive refining process's efficiency. Throughout the test, the HPA shaped will be tested for quality before being guided to potential end-users and marketers with whom it is presently negotiating.

Sep 2020 Altech Chemicals Ltd. announced that it is near to developing a range of high-purity alumina (HPA) that is exactly intended for use in the production of anodes in lithium-ion batteries. The biggest problem facing lithium-ion batteries is the trend of "first cycle capacity loss," which is the creation of inactive coats of lithium ions that appear on anodes start from the very first charging series and ongoing on for the life of the battery. Altech has advanced a process for suddenly demoting the creation of a lithium-ion layer on graphite anodes utilizing a proprietary blend of HPA.Altech Chemicals Limited (Australia), one of the leading global suppliers of high purity alumina (HPA) announced lodging seven patent applications in Australia and Malaysia for its unique high purity alumina production process involving kaolin (aluminous clay). Out of five, one innovation has already been granted with patent and now in the examination phase. Other two patent applications have been lodged in Malaysia as part of the company’s commitment to place itself in a strong position to protect its intellectual property rights.
