MIT Develops Deep-Sea Aluminium Anode Battery

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a safer, more efficient underwater battery using aluminium. MIT spinout Open Water Power (OWP) invented the aluminium anode battery for use in unpiloted underwater vehicles (UUV). Intended as a replacement for lithium-ion batteries, the aluminium-based batteries are expected to increase the range of most UUVs by […]

MIT Researchers Develop Method for More Uniformly Structured Aluminium Casts

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) say they have developed a method of casting aluminium in a more uniform manner. Such an improvement would lead to significant gains in the casting’s strength and reliability. In order to produce industrial aluminium slabs, small amounts of manganese and copper are mixed in with the molten […]

EGA Enters Second Year of R&D Partnership with MIT

Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) teamed up again this year to run several research projects aimed at improving the aluminium smelting process. Graduate students from MIT will be conducting six research projects at EGA’s Jebel Ali and Al Taweelah smelters in the UAE. According to WAM, the UAE state […]
