Altech Chemicals Ltd (ASX:ATC) has submitted the development order application to local authorities for its proposed high purity alumina (HPA) plant in Johor, Malaysia, following the receipt of a land sub-title number for its site.

The company has been advised that the development order approval timeline is typically 6-8 weeks.

However, Altech is working with its contractor SMS group GmbH and local authorities for the earlier commencement of bulk earthworks and the mobilisation of various sub-contractors, to maintain project momentum.

Earlier this month, the company announced that it had finalised its HPA plant site layout and building design, a final requirement before the submission of the development order application.

The final layout and design incorporate results from the recently completed site geotechnical survey and feedback from pre-construction consultation meetings between SMS group GmbH, local authorities, and Malaysian permitting consultant WKL & Associates.

Altech’s final site layout comprises three production buildings:

• Building 1: Kaolin beneficiation
• Building 2: Leach & neutralisation
• Building 3: HPA production & HCL (hydrochloric acid) recycle plant
