A presentation of SCALE technologies and breakthroughs.
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
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 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
Demonstrated scandium recovery from bauxite residues in industrial waste streams for new aluminum scandium alloys, additive manufacturing wires, and green energy infrastructure.

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
LCM has completed the SCALE metal technology demonstration activities by producing Al-Sc master alloys at small industrial scale. This master alloys can be used in production of Al-Mg-Sc alloys used in 3D printing applications. Learn more about LCM’s part in SCALE hereFollow LCM in twitterFollow LCM in LinkedIn
Sustainable Supply of Scandium, Niobium and Vanadium for the EU Industries from Liquid Residues from Chlorine-Based TiO2 Pigment PlantsAn EIT Raw Materials project (Nb. 20093) 2021-2023 Objective ScaVanger will ensure the steady supply of Sc, Nb and V for the EU to become leader in growing markets. Forecasts announce significant higher demands of Sc (300 t/y), Nb and V until

The 7th SCALE progress meeting was held on 1st of April 2020, online due to the COVID19 outbreak. In total 39 participants joined the online teleconference sessions to review and discuss the progress of the project. Hopefully the next REMOVAL meeting will be once again physical.
