Haemetite, most commonly known as rust, is a chemical compound of iron and oxygen. In the industrial realm it is known as red iron oxide.
Chrome sand is a naturally occurring mineral which has applications in heavy duty grey iron and steel foundries, lets see how.
Fools gold and brown bottles are just a few of the interesting aspects of Pyrites. We’ll explain all it’s uses, benefits, where to find it and identify it.
For water filtration, why do we use Anthracite filter media? Why its properties make it ideal for water filtration and wastewater treatment?
Iron Chromite's many industrial uses, is because of its high-heat stability, resistance to thermal shock, and resistance to corrosive gasses & slags.
With the global push away from fossil fuels to renewable sources of electricity well underway, the question of energy storage comes to the fore. Recent research shows the potential of pyrite as a material in batteries, allowing potential production of high performing battery cells without the need for excess expensive or hard-to-use materials such as cobalt and cadmium.
Modern mining and industry has made great strides in recent years in terms of pollution minimisation - but more can be done. Contaminants in industrial runoff and mining tailings - such as volatile organic compounds, amines, oxides of metals etc. - can be better removed with the help of activated carbon filtration.
Far from being an obvious choice for modern industry, manganese oxide - specifically Mn2O3 - finds a wealth of uses from water purification to removal of radionuclides.
Coal is used in all types of industries ranging from power, construction, furnace, farming and more. The purest form is Anthracite.
