Nalco To Branch Out Into Aluminium Alloys, Battery Production: Chand

In a wide-ranging interview with domestic media, National Aluminium Company Ltd’s (Nalco) chief Tapan Kumar Chand explained the firm’s plan to insulate itself from a volatile aluminium trade by diversifying into a range of new areas, including lithium mining, aerospace alloys, and mineral trading. “Nalco is building on its expertise in bauxite mining and aluminium […]

Altech Files for Patent Protection for Refined Method of Producing High-Purity Alumina From Kaolin

Australian innovator Altech Chemicals Ltd. announced yesterday the filing for a new provisional patent with the Australian government for an updated method for deriving alumina from kaolin and other such sources. Altech’s new patent involves treating the alumina-containing material to make particles smaller and richer in alumina content, calcining and leaching the material, separating the […]

Clemson Researchers Develop Improvements to Aluminium-Ion Battery Technology

Researchers at Clemson University say they have made progress in improving the performance of aluminium-ion batteries. Though aluminium-ion batteries are less toxic and more efficient than lithium-ion batteries, past attempts at making workable prototypes of an aluminium-ion battery have failed to produce a model that performs as well as a similar lithium-ion battery. Thus, consumers […]
