Alpha HPA (A4N) has spruiked the ability to manufacture battery- grade high-purity alumina particle sizing without a jet milling process.

The jet milling step process is typically used to create a particular sized particle distribution for applying high-purity alumina (HPA) within a lithium iron cell, which can be tailored by the jet mill accordingly.

Alpha’s development means it no longer has to action this pre-cursor step and can achieve “battery-grade” particle sizes without the jet milling process, which is hoped to equate to cost savings and potential reduction of impurities.

Broadly, Alpha has described this as a “very positive” development and has been implemented at demonstration plant scale.

In further news for A4N, the company managed to secure its first commercial sales order of HPA to an LED phosphor manufacturer in Germany and is set to be delivered in two weeks.

The ASX-lister said it has also laid ground for a network of marketing arrangements across key technology jurisdictions in North America, Japan, China and the European Union via a series of memorandums of understanding.

Alpha HPA shares are up 1.56 per cent following the announcement to trade at 65 cents at 1:24 pm AEST.
