REMADE Announces New Technology License For Aluminum Industry

August 17, 2023

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.

"Congratulations to the entire project team, including Phinix's Dr. Das and our tech team at the Institute," said REMADE CEO Nabil Nasr. "A new technology license is a tremendous accomplishment. We believe this technology will be incredibly valuable to U.S.-based aluminum companies, including those that supply the automotive industry. Ultimately, it's yet another key technology that accelerates the U.S.'s transition to a Circular Economy and assists the nation in meeting its net zero by 2050 goal."
