Orbite Aluminae Inc. (TSX:ORT,OTCQX:EORBF) received patents or its alumina production processes from aluminous ores such as clay, bauxite and other sources in China and Russia. These patents will protect the same processes as those used in Orbite’s high-purity alumina plant in Cap-Chat, Quebec as well as processes that will be used in its first smelter-grade alumina plant which is currently at the Feasibility Study stage.
As quoted in the press release:
Orbite’s patent portfolio now consists of nine patents in USA, Canada, Australia, China and Russia, as well as 31 pending patent applications in nine different countries covering fourteen intellectual property families.
Orbite Aluminae President and CEO Richard Boudreault said:
The issuance of these two patents is excellent news since China and Russia are the largest aluminum producing regions in the world. No patent application filed by Orbite has ever been denied, which should alleviate concerns about the patentability of our technology in China, Russia, and in other important countries, for our expanding portfolio of intellectual property.
