    Hafnium Product Breakthrough Consolidates Dubbo Project Business Case

    Alkane’s wholly owned subsidiary, Australian Strategic Materials Ltd (ASM), has developed high-purity hafnium  dioxide  products  tailored  to  meet  market  requirements. Hafnium oxide exceeding 99.8% HfO2, and 99.9% (Hf+Zr) O2, has been produced using a proprietary process to separate hafnium from zirconium at the demonstration pilot plant at ANSTO. Over the past 12 months, ASM has consulted extensively with industry to confirm growing market demand for high-purity hafnium, which currently depends on supply from the production of zirconium metal for specialty alloys and the nuclear industry. Global shortage of  hafnium  anticipated  as  demand  is  poised  to  outstrip  current  supply. Hafnium metal for super alloys is currently trading in a US$800 ‐ $900/kg range. The ASM […]
