As an acknowledgement of a significant team effort over many years, DNi finds itself nominated for an award in the Australian Innovation Challenge.
The Australian Innovation Challenge awards are run by The Australian newspaper in association with Shell with the support of the federal Department of Industry. A panel of eminent Australians is judging the awards in five professional categories, with this year’s winners to be announced on 29 Nov 2014.
Direct Nickel’s selection as a finalist recognises the technological innovation of the DNi Process, an atmospheric hydrometallurgical process able to treat most nickel laterite ores to produce a number of final saleable products. The nomination also follows the completion of its successful Nickel Production Demonstration Program earlier this year DNi built and operated a one tonne per day Test Plant at the CSIRO’s Australian Minerals Research Centre in Waterford, WA.
