REMADE Announces New Technology License for Aluminum Industry
INNOVATION WILL IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF RECYCLED ALUMINUM AND ALLOW FOR MORE DIVERSE USES, INCLUDING ELECTRIC VEHICLE MANUFACTURING
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — August 17, 2023 — The REMADE Institute, a 170-member public-private partnership established and funded in part by the United States Department of Energy (DOE), today announced a new technology license involving technology developed with REMADE support. The license involves a technological innovation capable of removing metallic impurities from recycled aluminum melts, thereby improving the quality of the aluminum and allowing it to be used for more diverse applications, including electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing.
The innovation is part of a research and development project first funded by REMADE in 2020. The R&D project, "Selective Recovery of Elements from Molten Aluminum Alloys," is still in progress and is led by Subodh Das, Ph.D., CEO of Phinix, LLC. REMADE's tech team oversees the project, ensuring it meets the Institute's and DOE's technological milestones.
