Orbite Announces Changes to Management

That the company has abolished the position of Vice President Corporate Development, which was held by Marc Johnson and the position of Vice President Sustainability, which was held by Guy-Louis Boucher, was announced by Glenn Kelly, Orbite’s Chief Operating Officer. Orbite Aluminae Inc. is a Canadian corporation with innovative and proprietary processes, that are expected to produce alumina and other high-value by-products, such as rare earth and rare metal oxides, at one of the lowest costs in the industry, without generating any wastes, using feedstocks that include aluminous clay, kaolin, nepheline, bauxite, red mud and fly ash. Orbite is currently operating and optimizing its first commercial high-purity alumina production plant in Cap-Chat, Québec. Orbite has completed the basic engineering for a proposed smelter-grade alumina production plant, which would use clay mined from its Grande-Vallée deposit. Orbite signed an exclusive worldwide collaborative agreement with Veolia Environmental Services for the remediation of red mud using the Orbite processes with the intent to begin construction of a Veolia-operated plant. The corporation has an intellectual property portfolio that contains 14 IP families, and owns the intellectual property rights to 9 patents and 40 pending patent applications in 10 different countries.
