The AEM Group focuses on the production of High Purity Alumina (“HPA”) for use in fast-growing global markets including the global LED, semiconductor and lithium ion battery (EV-LIB) sectors.
The Group’s businesses include AEM Canada Group Inc ("AEM Canada"), formed in early 2020 to acquire an innovative and technical pioneer in the research and development of a patented and proven process for producing HPA.
AEM Canada owns and operates the Cap-Chat HPA Process Plant which is now producing SupALOXTM branded high purity alumina for customer acceptance testing by, and initial sales to, the world's new Electric Vehicle's Lithium Ion Battery giga-factories and global LED manufacturers (see www.supalox.com) .
In the United Kingdom, the AEM Group has established an entity with the intention of exploiting emerging opportunity to play a leading role in the development of the supply chain for the UK’s lithium-ion battery industry. Here it is working on the design and related feasibility studies with the aim of building and commissioning a “next generation” plant based on a modular extension concept of its Canadian plant by early 2023.
In addition to these regional operations, the Group also has multiple patents and proprietary technology and owns the state-of-the-art Technology Development Centre (TDC) in Laval, Quebec.
The AEM Group’s intellectual property includes patents and technologies that involve world leading chemical processes for producing a range of high-value industrial minerals, including HPA and rare earths.
In the area of mineral exploration and development, the Group has access to resources though its Australian operations, where AEM also owns highly prospective kaolin deposits in Cape York peninsula, Queensland, especially suitable as a feed stock for producing HPA.
