The overall situation of vanadium industry in 2022 was elaborated and analyzed from the global vanadium resources and production capacity, the output, supply and demand, import and export, as well as the market prices. Based on the current operating situation of the vanadium industry at home and abroad, the outlook for the market is forecasted, and it is believed that the global vanadium industry will enter a new cycle of transformation and development, and China needs to scientifically, efficiently and orderly develop and utilize vanadium in key strategic metal mineral resources. Plan the green and low-carbon development path of vanadium industry in advance. In the next few years, China will still be the world’s largest vanadium supply and demand market, and the global vanadium market price will show a consolidation and regression trend within a certain range under the multi-factor regulation mechanism. Vanadium redox flow battery will become one of the important carriers to support the safe and stable application of new energy.

For titanium alloys, the type and content of alloying elements have a great impact on the properties of the alloy. For β-titanium alloy, the main problem is how to select β-stable elements and control the addition of β-stable elements. In this paper, the influence of different alloyed elements on β-titanium alloy is reviewed, and the development process and current situation of high-strength β-titanium alloy at home and abroad are summarized. The American Ti-1023, β21-S, Russian BT22, Ti-5553 and Chinese Ti-5523 are mainly introduced. In addition, from the perspective of controlling the size, shape and type of the alloy phase by adding small size gap elements, the improvement of the strength of β-titanium alloy is prospected, in order to further improve the strength of β-titanium alloy. Finally, the difficulties encountered in the development of β-titanium alloy and the possible development direction of β-titanium alloy are summarized.

The floating titanium concentrate grade of a concentrator in Panxi area is 46.84%, among which gangue minerals SiO2 and CaO are not conducive to the subsequent chlorination process of titanium dioxide. Adding inhibitors to acidified sodium silicate, sulfuric acid, sodium silicate, sodium fluorosilicate and lignin can effectively inhibit gangue minerals from floating and improve the grade of titanium concentrate, among which sulfuric acid and lignin show the best effect, and sulfuric acid is determined to be the quality improvement flotation inhibitor. The effects of stirring time, sulfuric acid dosage and collector dosage on the final grade and recovery of titanium concentrate were investigated by a single flotation process. The optimal flotation conditions were determined to be stirring time of 10 min, sulfuric acid dosage of 2000 g/t and MOH dosage of 2000 g/t. Under the optimal flotation conditions, the grade of titanium concentrate can be increased from 46.84% to 50.04%, the recovery rate of titanium concentrate is 41.93%, and the CaO+SiO2≤1.5%, which meets the quality improvement requirements.

Abstract(42) HTML(13) PDF(5)
Calcium ferrite is main bonding phase in high-basicity sinter, its formation is closely related to the sinter quality, and the appropriate amount of bonding phase is also an important factor of energy saving and carbon reduction in the sintering process. In this work, mono-calcium ferrite (CF) as an initial bonding phase and pre-sintered hematite (Fe2O3) powder as iron ore fines were used to investigate the influence of particle size composition of iron ore fines on the appropriate amount of bonding phase in sintering process. The results show that the amount of bonding phase needed for obtaining the same compressive strength of sintered samples increases with the increase of iron ore fines size. At same particle size range of iron ore fines, the compressive strength increases first and then decreases with increase of CF addition, and its maximum value should be corresponding to the suitable amount of bonding phase. At different particle size range, the maximum compressive strength decreases with increase of iron ore fines size, simultaneous the suitable amount of bonding phase shiftes to the direction of increasing bonding phase amount. Besides, CF reacts with Fe2O3 to form a calcium rich-ferrate (Ca3.6Fe14.4O25.2) with the low melting point, increasing the amount of bonding phase in sintering process. The Ca3.6Fe14.4O25.2 formation as a new phase increases with the increase of CF addition and the decrease of iron ore fines size, which revealed the relationship of amount between actual bonding phase and initial one in sintering process.

This paper summarizes and sorts the operational data of titanium dioxide industry in China in 2022, such as production capacity, yield, apparent market demand, production capacity distribution, etc., and focuses on analyzing the recent growth trend of titanium dioxide production capacity and the corresponding changes in the supply and demand relationship of titanium ore raw materials. It is pointed out that the yield and production capacity of titanium dioxide in 2022 will continue to maintain an increasing trend, and the concentration of production capacity will be further improved. At the same time, the further expansion of the scale of existing producers and the increase of joining projects outside the industry will lead to the shortage of titanium ore supply. In addition, with the rise of the green new energy battery material industry, a large number of iron phosphate or lithium iron phosphate project construction or preparation, will lead to the surge of titanium dioxide production capacity, aggravate the contradiction between titanium ore supply and demand; then the market prospects and industry outlook is worrying, all parties should pay close attention to and timely adjust.
