Leuk voor de lange termijn en met de visie op de nieuwe (grote capaciteit) batterij technologie die eraan zit te komen waarin HPA poeder ( High purity Alumina ) een grote rol speelt. Dit is een van de bedrijven die hard aan de weg timmert met dit product en een fabriek in australie , maleisie en eerdaags ook in duitsland opent.
het aandeel staat nog op 3 cent ( 22 cent geweest 2 jaar geleden ) en wordt verhandeld op de frankfurt exchange onder de noemer; AU000000ATC9
"" The major key players operating in the global high purity alumina industry include Norsk Hydro ASA, Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd., Baikowski SAS, Alcoa Inc., Nippon Light Metal Holdings Company, Ltd., Altech Chemicals Ltd., Zibo Honghe Chemical Co. Ltd., Sasol and Xuan Cheng Jing Rui New Material Co. Ltd., and Hebei Pengda Advanced Materials Technology Co., Ltd. ""
High purity alumina (HPA) is a high-purity form of aluminium oxide (Al2O3).
'' High purity alumina is a high-value, high margin and highly demanded product as it is the critical ingredient required for the production of synthetic sapphire. Synthetic sapphire is used in the manufacture of substrates for LED lights, semiconductor wafers used in the electronics industry, and scratch-resistant sapphire glass used for wristwatch faces, optical windows and smartphone components. There is no substitute for HPA in the manufacture of synthetic sapphire. Increasingly, HPA is being used as a coating on the separator sheets in lithium-ion batteries. HPA is a premium priced material (selling for up to US$40 per kg) with forecast significant annual demand growth driven primarily by two fast-growing industries: the sapphire/LED industry and the rapidly expanding lithium-ion battery industry.
With global HPA demand approximately 19,000tpa (2018), it is estimated that this demand will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30% (2018-2028); by 2028 HPA market demand is forecast to be approximately 272,000tpa, driven by both the increasing adoption of LEDs worldwide as well as the increasing demand by lithium-ion battery manufacturers to serve the surging electric vehicle market.''
Altech Chemicals Limited (ASX:ATC) (FRA:A3Y) has executed a purchase agreement option for a 10-hectare industrial site in Schwarze Pumpe Industrial Park at Spreetal in the Saxony region of Germany as the company considers constructing a second high purity alumina (HPA) plant.
This also comes after Germany unveiled details of electric vehicle (EV) industry fiscal support incorporated in its economic stimulus package post-COVID-19.
The company received an official invitation from the State Government of Saxony in September 2020 to consider building its next HPA plant in Saxony.
This deal provides Altech with an initial 12-month term during which it can exercise its purchase option, with the ability to extend the option period by a further 12-months via mutual consent.
