The next major milestone is the testing and start-up sequence of the decomposer and calciner ovens, commencing today, and will be carried out as follows:
Two additional sample sets were sent to prospective customers.
"Today's commencement of the procedure leading to hot commissioning and start-up of the calcination system is the key milestone towards full plant commissioning and start of commercial production. The most critical and lengthy step in this process is starting up the ovens, which involves achieving the correct heating and temperature profile throughout the entire calcination system. We are confident of completing this step successfully, which would continue us on course for commencement of commercial production in Q1. We will report to the market as we go through the start-up procedure."
