Stage two HPA production
FYI recently completed stage two production of high purity alumina (HPA) from its pilot plant facility in Welshpool, Western Australia.
The successful stage two trial comes after positive feedback and multiple requests from various potential offtake groups for additional HPA product.
HPA product generated from the pilot plant will be checked for quality control and assurance including sending representative samples to an independent laboratory in the US for precise analysis.
Once satisfied, FYI will forward trial HPA to designated potential customers with their requested product orders (sizes varying from 5-20 kilograms) to undertake further detailed qualification assessment.
