Lithium-Ion Batteries (LIB) are driving a revolution in energy storage and one of the key components is high purity alumina (HPA). HPA improves the batteries’ performance, reliability and safety – critical for electric vehicles, solar battery storage and consumer electronics.
high purity aluminium products.
To support the transition to decarbonising technologies, the world needs high purity alumina (HPA). Our unique, hyper-efficient licensed Smart SX Technology enables us to produce sustainable ultra high purity aluminium products reflecting our commitment to decarbonisation and our vision to bring the whole world forward, together. We are green through ingenuity; we are Australia based and globally focussed. We are Alpha HPA.
Synthetic Sapphire is the impossibly perfect, scratch resistant face on a luxury Swiss wristwatch, Smartphone camera lens. It is sought after for its extreme hardness, high heat resistance and thermal conductivity. Wherever there’s a need for Synthetic Sapphire, there’s a demand for HPA as there is no substitute for HPA.
HPA is a key component in the evolution and global adoption of LED lighting systems and displays. Due to its exceptional thermal conductivity and an ultra pure surface, it’s used to produce LED sapphire substrates and aluminate phosphors (eg YAG and LuAG) which down convert blue LED light to the desired light spectrum.
What makes our Smart SX Technology the most sustainable, high purity alumina process technology in the world? Watch our short video to find out.
Gladstone is the home of our HPA First facility—a city with a strong industrial framework and one of the busiest multi-commodity ports in Australia. This will be the global hub from which we commercialise our Smart SX Technology, with a forecast delivery of 10,000 tonnes of HPA per annum, creating new opportunities for the local community.
Our process is disruptive in that we can deliver ultra high purity alumina at very low cost
As global markets demand cleaner energy solutions, manufacturers of Lithium-based energy storage solutions, LED lights and Smartphones are demanding HPA. To 2025, the total HPA compound annual growth rate is forecast to be 17.5%. Looking at electric vehicles alone, growth demand for HPA as a key material is forecast to increase by 400%.
