Alcan Opens New Alumina R&D Facility in Australia Alcan recently opened its new alumina research and development (R&D) facility in Brisbane, Australia. The purpose- built Queensland Research and Development Centre (QRDC) will develop new technologies and enhance existing alumina production processes to improve productivity, environmental performance and employee safety. Located at the Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies (QCAT), a joint venture between the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and the Queensland Government, the QRDC was officially opened by the Honourable Ian Macfarlane MP, Federal Minister for Industry, Tourism and Resources and Mr Michael Choi MP, Member for Capalaba, who was representing the Honourable Tony McGrady MP, Queensland Minister for State Development and Innovation. "Construction of the AU$2.4 million purpose-built R&D facility was jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland governments. QRDC will directly employ world-class chemists, metallurgists and chemical engineers," said Richard Yank, President of Pacific Operations, Alcan Bauxite and Alumina, at the centre's opening. Richard Yank and Minister Ian Macfarlane in the QRDC lab Trust your most complex cores to INCAST ®. The ideal combination of geometry, density and particle size distribution, INCAST improves critical core making and casting properties including binder utilization, permeability and dimensional stability. Higher strength cores, better surface finish and increased efficiency and yield are the INCAST advantages. These sands are engineered for the metalcaster.
