Scandium in ScaVanger

Scandium (Sc) applications in solid oxide electrolyzer cells, aeronautics and 3D printing are forecasted to increase significantly without a sufficient continuous Sc supply for Europe. ScaVanger is upscaling Sc extraction and purification technologies from various TiO2 pigment production residues. High purity Sc2O3 and ScF3 will be produced at competitive prices in the EU for the EU market. The ScaVanger process

SCALE pilot in Mytilineos Plant

A new hydrometallurgical pilot unit was built in MYTILINEOS Aluminium of Greece plant under the SCALE project. The pilot unit consists of the leaching section where Bauxite Residue is treated with sulfuric acid to produce a PLS  that is processed in II-VI SIR pilot section unit, where Sc recovery and crude Sc concentrate production takes place. The pilot leaching unit

SINTEF successfully produced Al with Sc by electrolysis

SINTEF has demonstrated the direct production of Al with ~ 2wt% Sc by electrolysis from a cryolite melt with Al2O3 and Sc2O3 as feed material, obtaining current efficiencies in the range of 85-90%. The trials were carried in electrolytic cells using a horizontal electrode arrangement, as in the Hall-Heroult primary aluminium production process. Thus, dedicated electrolytic cells in the aluminium

KBM demonstrates Al-Sc 3D printing with SCALE alloy

Following the successful demonstration of Al-Sc alloy production at LCM, KBM proceeded with a demonstration of the additive manufacturing technology. Al-Sc master alloy was processed at KBM cast house to produce SCALM alloy (Al-Sc-Mg). The SCALM alloy was atomized,  i.e. transformed into metallic powder, which in turn was used to fuel a lazer 3D printer. The  resulting model depicts landmarks
