Altech Chemicals (ASX:ATC, FRA:A3Y) advances clean energy electric vehicle battery storage through its patented high-purity alumina (HPA) coating process for silicon and graphite has “cracked the silicon barrier” by solving the first-charge problem and other challenges that have hindered other companies’ attempts. As a result, Altech Chemicals has produced batteries that have a 30 percent higher energy density than current lithium-ion batteries, which means improved energy storage and a longer battery lifespan.

Altech Chemicals has also purchased land in Germany for its pilot plant to manufacture commercial samples of its patented Silumina Anodes™ product to introduce to the European market as part of the qualification process. In addition, the Company has completed a pre-feasibility study to construct a facility capable of manufacturing 10,000 tonnes per annum (TPA) of Silumina Anodes™ battery material. The pre-feasibility study indicated robust economics including an NPV of US$507M and a favorable internal rate of return of 40 percent, with a low capital cost of just US$95M.
