Pilot manufacturing plant to produce high-purity alumina for batteries and LEDs


QUT researchers have partnered with mining company Lava Blue and the Innovative Manufacturing CRC (IMCRC) to set up a pilot plant to transform kaolin clay into high-purity alumina (HPA) which is used to make LEDs and Lithium ion batteries.

Project leader Dr Sara Couperthwaite said the two-year pilot plant study, to be built at QUT’s Banyo Pilot Plant facility, aimed to show that the process had better economic and environmental outcomes than conventional production routes.
