The partnership, which will receive initial funding of $188 million (Cdn) ($US147 million), will be based in Montreal and have a research facility in Quebec's Saguenay region. Apple will invest $10 million in the project while Alcoa and Rio-Tino will invest $43 million between them. The Governments of Canada and the Province of Quebec will add an additional $94 million.
The GHG emission reduction will be achieved by the replacement of a carbon anode -- which is normally burnt during the smelting process -- with an "advanced conductive material" that releases oxygen rather than carbon dioxide. The technology is still in development but expected to be available in 2024.
