    How To Make TiO2 Manufacturing More Efficient

    TiO2 (Titanium Dioxide) is a pure white material and most people would recognise it as it is the main pigment used in paint, it is used in two-thirds of all pigments; there is an enormous global demand for the material.  However, its production is somewhat wasteful. Even the most efficient plants produce more waste than...

    Recovering Critical Materials From Gasifier Cinder

    GSA has recently completed several rounds of research to successfully recover vanadium and nickel from gasifier cinder.  We’ve concluded that if the metals in the cinder were to be recovered, it would prevent 27,000 tonnes of vanadium pentoxide and 11,000 tonnes of nickel oxide going into landfill each year.  “Recovering metals like vanad...

    A Zero Waste Approach to TiO2 Manufacturing

    Currently, TiO2 waste is neutralised and eventually landfilled.  Although the term used is neutralised, it tends to remain alkaline and hazardous because of its vanadium and TiO2 content.  GSA has developed and patented a route whereby TiO2 waste can be separated to recover useful elements, such as vanadium, scandium and niobium as main p...

    Uses of Vanadium: Renewable Energy and Transmission

    Discovered in 1831, Vanadium is a metal named after the Swedish Goddess of Beauty and Fertility due to the brilliant and attractive colours of the chemical compounds in which it was first found.  Today, Vanadium is less known for its visual beauty and instead for its strength, weldability and resistance to corrosion and high temperatures...

    Uses of Vanadium: Transport

    Vanadium’s ability to add strength and weldability to steel when the two are alloyed together, alongside its corrosive resistant properties makes it the perfect companion to modern-day transport.  Today, we’re taking a closer look at how the element is becoming more important in the aerospace, automotive, shipping and rail industries.&n...
