“Alumina” doo is making significant effort to develop the new products.
In the end of the 2012, Alumina was mostly producing metallurgical alumina, zeolite 4A for detergents and liquid water glass.
During the year 2013, Alumina has reoriented its production of alumina, meaning that currently, the 60% of production is hydrate and alumina from non-smelter program and 40% of production is focused on the production of smellter alumina with tendency to produce only non-smelter products. In addition to this, in the period from 2013 - 2016 was developed the production of zeolite 4A for production of molecular sieves. Within this production was developed a range of 3A products (3A 30%, 3A 40% 3A 50%), so as the production of zeolite 4A AG with higher adsorption capacity comparing to the standard zeolite 4A, in the field of detergent zeolites.
In the production of Aluminum Hydroxide (ATH) developed is the production of ATH with low soda content (Na2O = 0,1 - 0,12%), so as the production of so called "white ATH" the whiteness degree of 92-96%, that finds its application in various fields. On the basis of wet hydrates is developed the line of dry hydrates of different granulometry and content of moisture.
In accordance with the quality of the, above stated ATH types, is developed the production of alumina with lower content of Soda (Na2O = 0,15 - 0,20 %), so as the production of "white alumina" that, due to its characteristics, finds its application in the production of fibers and ceramics.
In the year of 2017, Alumina doo has finished the first phase of the production of fine precipitated hydrates (capacity of 10.000 t/y) and started the sale one of three targeted qualities - ALOLT 60 DLS.
Beside this, the company built a new plant for production of specialty zeolites (Mordenit and ZSM-5) and Silica gel. In the area of dried and milled hydrates the company started the production and sale on the market of following classified and milled hydrates: HydrAl 100 - P, HydrAl 55 - P, HydrAl 20 and HydrAl10, so as the milled white hydrate HydrAl 20-B.
In the year of 2018. Alumina doo expand its production capacity in the area of fine precipitated hydrates for additional quantity of 40.000 t/y.
In the area of Zeolites, Alumina doo the market of molecular sieves (4A MS, 3A Zeolite) the market has been expanded as well.
The production of Corundum is also planned in the capacity of 8000 t/y in the 1st phase so as the expansion of the market of dried/milled hydrates within the market demands.
