A different kind of stored energy: far from the traditional application of anthracite as a fuel, it can be ground and incorporated into battery components such as anodes and casings.
Iron pyrite is an inexpensive and widely available material that finds use in iron production, affording interesting enhancements to process efficiency and final products.
Ground glass powder is the most common additive in the manufacture of rock/mineral wools for insulation products and other applications.
Anthracite-bentonite is a hardy combination for the removal of contaminants from spills and waste streams
Hematite and magnetite are mostly known as sources of iron, but an array of use cases are found when they’re used in soils.
Without tundishes, production of cast metal products would be inefficient and more costly. Through the use of refractory-lined tundishes, the process of metal casting is greatly enhanced.
Hematite finds uses beyond the blast furnace: as an essential component in some modern drilling fluids for oil and gas drilling, the exploration industry highly values hematite for its performance characteristics, high purity and low cost.
Moving towards a more environmentally and economically responsible method of anthracite calcination has many features making it well suited to industrial use.
Some important properties of feldspar is the alumina and alkali content. Thus they have many applications in the paint, glass, and ceramic industries.
Yellow ochre (limonite), a hydrated form of iron oxide hydroxide, is a naturally occurring ore of iron with uses beyond pigments.
