Australian Strategic Materials, ZironTech produce titanium using 70% less energy than common methods

ASM is focussed on ensuring high-purity permanent-magnet metals and titanium metals do not cause the environmental impacts

Just a couple of months ago, Australian Strategic Materials and ZironTech were able to produce 30 kilos of titanium metal alloy with the patented reduction process the JV has developed using 45% less power than current industry methods, so August’s results are interpreted as a positive step.

Woodall said that the company is now working on commencing a metal plant feasibility which will confirm the optimal size of a plant in Korea, with the opportunity to build additional plants in key manufacturing areas in Australia, North America, and Europe.

The idea is to feed these plants with the output from its polymetallic Dubbo project in New South Wales, which has a large in-ground resource of zirconium, rare earth elements (including yttrium), niobium, and hafnium.
