Alpha HPA progresses battery metals precursor production


Aluminium chemicals company Alpha HPA has continued to develop its Stage 1, battery materials Precursor Production Facility (PPF) in Gladstone, Queensland.

The company told investors that following first small scale commercial production of high purity aluminium nitrate (Al-nitrate) precursors in March, the plant was now in production of high purity aluminas (HPA).

The company is also in final commissioning of process equipment to provide capacity for the production of the full range of Alpha’s high purity aluminium products.

Alpha’s Managing Director Rimas Kairaitis said: “Alpha continues to build strong production and marketing momentum by leveraging our expanded capacity in the Stage 1 PPF.

“We are highly encouraged by the stronger end-user engagement and the additional Letters of Intent, which further consolidate the building demand we are observing in our target technology sectors.

“In parallel, the Company is expanding our team and capabilities as we build our readiness for Stage 2 execution.”

Alpha HPA is also close to finalising the Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) and financing arrangements for Stage 2 of the HPA First Project, representing the full commercial scale implementation of Alpha’s proprietary aluminium purification process technology.

In preparation for Phase 2 Matthew Callanan, Site Manager for Alpha has been appointed as GM Manufacturing in Gladstone and Lisa Roobottom to the role of GM Manufacturing Support.

Roobottom was previously COO of Graphene Manufacturing Group.

Alpha has also received the second payment under the $15.5 million Modern Manufacturing Initiative – Collaboration (MMI-C) grant.

Alpha received $4.95M under the terms of the grant, with 10 percent of MMI-C funds flowing to chemicals and explosives group Orica as a grant participant.
