The development and implementation of the new system will increase the Company's aluminium production efficiency twofold; by decreasing the abnormalities throughout the process and improving the reduction cell control quality.
EGA is set to conduct new research with scientists from the University of New South Wales aiming to reduce what the industry terms 'background' PFC emissions - those that are from variations in reduction cell conditions that are too small to be detected and remedied by the control technology available today.
In situ monitoring of the OR process enables efficient operation; its principle purpose is to monitor the performance and efficiency of a reduction cell. In particular, the extent to which the oxide fuel is converted to metal at the cathode is key information for determining the efficiency of a reduction cell.
