:: Ausmelt Wins Prestigious Export Awards  

Melbourne-based technology group Ausmelt Ltd has won the inaugural Victorian Export Award for Innovation Excellence. The company has also won the 2002 Governor of Victoria Minerals and Energy Export Award.

Ausmelt has developed a suite of innovative technologies and is marketing them globally to the metals, minerals and waste treatment industries.

Ausmelt was established in 1994 to commercialise the revolutionary top submerged lance metal smelting technology invented by Dr John Floyd while he was working with the CSIRO.

While non-ferrous metal smelting is still a key focus for Ausmelt, the company has since adapted its technology for use in iron and steel - its AusIron technology is patented - and in treatment of waste materials.

Ausmelt has also developed a new mineral flotation reagent known as AM2, that greatly improves the recovery of metals from oxidised ores.

AM2 is currently being tested at a North Queensland mine and has attracted strong interest from international mining and metals groups.

Ausmelt is working with Korea Zinc to apply its technology for the treatment of municipal waste incinerator ash to remove the heavy metals and provide a cleaner, reduced quantity of slag for final disposal.

In partnership with Portland Aluminium, Ausmelt has developed a revolutionary technology for the treatment of spent pot lining, an environmentally hazardous waste product created by aluminium smelters.
