Altair Nanotechnologies Completes Phase One Pigment Contract for Asia Pacific Company
RENO, Nev., April 8, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- Altair Nanotechnologies Inc. (Nasdaq:ALTI) announced today that it has successfully completed phase I development and has produced phase pure rutile titanium dioxide (TiO2) entirely from ilmenite concentrates provided by a materials company in the Asia Pacific region. The pigment was produced for that company as part of their development agreement with Altair. The capability is important to companies within the pigment industry as Altair's process takes readily available, inexpensive feedstock and, with its patented process, economically produces phase pure titanium dioxide pigment without the need of expensive intermediate upgrade technologies that include slagging or synthetic rutile production. This effectively reduces the operating cost for the AHPP by roughly US$150-200 per metric ton.
