Why Invest

Alpha HPA’s Smart SX Technology delivers some of the highest purity aluminium products in the world, at world-leading margins in a first class jurisdiction and with a very low carbon footprint.

Alpha HPA’s products are in growing demand as the world’s technologies and governments respond to a once in generational technology shift to meet the challenges of de-carbonisation

Outlook for HPA

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%.

Existing HPA Processing Methods
Feasibility Study

The HPA First Project Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) was delivered in March 2020 and provides a technically robust and compelling business case:

Currently, around 83% of the world’s HPA supply comes from the Asia Pacific (APAC) region, with China the most prolific producer. Large, diversified chemical companies dominate this production, and generate HPA as a secondary product.

Our HPA First Project represents a large volume, single source, HPA production proposition, providing enormous opportunity. Alpha HPA has the potential to become the alternative supply source to the existing dominant producers. More importantly, Alpha HPA is well placed to fill the expected supply shortage as forecast HPA demand escalates over the next decade.

Low Waste,
High Efficiencies

Our efficiencies impact more than the bottom line. They align with the markets that we’re delivering into—the markets that are driving decarbonisation. The revolution in energy storage, the global adoption of LED lights and the demand Smartphones is not separate to the increasing call for greener practices, and in the production sustainable high purity alumina, Alpha HPA leads the way.

Demand for HPA
by Region

Demand for HPA is primarily being driven by the increasing adoption of LED (Light Emitting Diode) products, separators in lithium ion batteries (Li-B’s) and scratch resistant artificial sapphire glass for Smartphone screens and watches.

Growth demand is dominated by the APAC Region (~70% in 2016) primarily China, Japan and South Korea. Alpha HPA is ideally placed to service the most dominant region of global HPA demand.
