MIREA, the online real-time solution for checking electrical quality of anodes, was also presented by Rio Tinto/ AP Technology™. A first prototype was developed by Rio Tinto Alcan, and after encouraging results, MIREA has been industrialized by Fives ECL and is being field-tested in partnership with a Canadian smelter.
