The Chemours Company | January 27, 2023
The Chemours Company, a chemistry company with market-leading positions in Thermal & Specialized Solutions, Titanium Technologies, and Advanced Performance Materials, announced the introduction of Ti-PureTM TS-1510, a highly efficient rutile titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment designed to improve processing performance in various plastics applications, including polyolefin masterbatch.
The increased processing performance of this grade offers up to a 6%* reduction in the net carbon footprint of the advanced pigment manufacturing process through masterbatch production, compared to conventional TiO2 pigments, while simultaneously increasing profits. Ti-PureTM TS-1510 is the most recent pigment launch under the company's Ti-PureTM Sustainability (TS) line, a new product family highlighting Chemours' dedication to furthering societal, consumer, and business segment sustainability goals.
Ti-PureTM TS-1510 was created to overcome customer difficulties and enhance their production rate and processing capabilities. Chemours developed a revolutionary technology to create this pigment with increased material bulk density in order to address these difficulties while simultaneously increasing profits and masterbatch processability.
The higher level of processing efficiency provided by Ti-PureTM TS-1510 will enable Chemours' direct and downstream customers to decrease their individual environmental footprints and enhance the plastics industry's sustainability. Ti-PureTM TS-1510 offers energy and labor efficiencies for masterbatch producers, resulting in a smaller carbon footprint than conventional TiO2 pigment. In addition, Chemours delivers Ti-PureTM TS-1510 in recyclable or reusable packaging to further increase the product's sustainability.
Cherie Stancik, Product Development Manager, Plastics Segment – Titanium Technologies at Chemours, said, “At Chemours, our customers’ needs drive our approach to innovation. The introduction of Ti-Pure™ TS-1510 reflects our commitment to developing new products that advance the state of the industries we serve.”

Elessent Clean Technologies | March 13, 2023
MECS, Inc., a subsidiary of Elessent Clean Technologies (Elessent), announced being contracted for the provision of a MECS® sulfuric acid facility by Lithium Americas Corp. (LAC). The new sulfuric acid facility with a capacity of 3,000 metric tons per day (MTPD) will feature MECS® HRS technology to capture waste heat for steam generation, which will be converted into carbon-free energy.
The new plant will be constructed at the Thacker Pass operation of Lithium Americas, which is North America's largest lithium carbonate processing plant and is fully permitted for construction.
Nevada has become a very important source of lithium for the U.S., as the country's leaders are making plans to stop importing lithium. As the need to move away from fossil fuels continues to grow, more and more people are buying electric vehicles (EVs) to help with the energy transition.
To make EV batteries, lithium and other raw materials like cobalt and nickel are needed, along with other materials like copper and zinc. The MECS® sulfuric acid technology delivers sulfuric acid for processing raw materials for batteries while making sure that site emissions are kept under the tightest control possible.
"We are thrilled to be working with Lithium Americas and EXP on this project. It is very exciting to be part of such a monumental project in the United States that has the potential to make a global impact on the battery metal supply chain. Throughout the planning process our team has been cognizant of environmental preservation, and we want Thacker Pass to be the prototype for environmental stewardship for other projects of this nature. We have worked closely with Lithium Americas to ensure maximum efficiency so they can meet industry growth needs while prioritizing carbon reduction initiatives," said Eli Ben-Shoshan, CEO of Elessent.
