Ultra-High-Temperature Electrolytic Titanium Extraction From Waste Slag (2018)
A new process to produce affordable titanium metal has the potential to widen its use. In New Zealand, up to 200,000 tonnes/year of Ti-rich slag is available as a by-product of the steelmaking process. Recently, molten oxides have been proven as candidate electrolytes for high-temperature, carbon-free metal production [1,2]. The goal of this research is to explore the feasibility of using the slag directly from the process to electrolytically extract high-purity metal and to develop an efficient and sustainable process.
