    RUSAL, the leading global aluminium producers, completes preparations for construction of the pilot plant to produce fine precipitated aluminium hydroxide (FPAH) for the cable industry at its Achinsk Alumina Refinery.  The plant will have a capacity of 5,000 tpa with an investment of over RUB 500 million. The plan for the pilot project started two years back and considering the positive customer feedback and the quality of the produce during testing, they expanded the plan.

    “The demand for FPAH in Russia and around the world grows gradually every year. This is why we expect that the new production will reach the designed capacity by the end of 2021, and then we will be able to offer the environmentally-friendly and cost-competitive product to an extensive pool of customers. In addition, if the demand increases, we can build up the FPAH production capacity at the second project implementation stage,’ said Evgeny Nikitin, RUSAL's CEO.

    Fine precipitated aluminium hydroxide is a powder with particles, which is hundred times thinner than a human hair. Its physical and chemical properties make this material an excellent fire retardant. Owing to that quality, aluminium hydroxide is widely used in the production of silicate wool for cables for the nuclear, ship building, aviation, and automotive industries.

    Global consumption of FPAH exceeds 800,000 tpa and grows by more than 4% per year. The project of RUSAL will become the first domestic FPAH plant. The Russian FPAH production process is invented by the Rusal’s own Engineering and Technological Centre. The first batch of FPAH was produced at a large laboratory-scale plant. The production process does not generate waste and does not emit sulphur and nitrogen oxides and dioxides.
