Extraction of vanadium from titano-magetite concentrates

Join the Metallurgical Society for their webinar: Extraction of vanadium from titano-magetite concentrates.

April ausimm vanadium

The commercialisation of vanadium redox flow batteries, for large scale energy storage, and an increase in the demand for high strength steel alloys is expected to result in a significant increase in the global demand for vanadium.

The majority of the vanadium is extracted from complex titanomagnetites. These magnetites are commonly processed using a steelmaking flowsheet or a sodium roasting flowsheet. Due to the complexities associated with processing these concentrates in a steelmaking flowsheet, the majority of future projects are expected to use the sodium roasting flowsheet. There are a number of these deposits in Western Australia, and several are at various stages of development.

This webinar will review the vanadium extraction flowsheet, with a particular focus on the roasting and leaching portion of the flowsheet.
