Vanadium electrolyte

TNG launches study as it moves forward plans to build a VRFB electrolyte facility in Australia

Australian resource and mineral processing technology company TNG has hired an engineering group to undertake a technology and process design study for the development of its vanadium electrolyte production facility.

Perth-based METS Engineering (METS) is due to begin the study on behalf of TNG’s vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) business, which will be owned by TNG’s 100%-owned subsidiary TNG Energy.

The study will deliver Australian preliminary process design documentation for the vanadium electrolyte facility, which will include all aspects of building the plant. 

The process design will be driven by a comprehensive technology study that will evaluate available technologies, optimisation opportunities and previous work completed by TNG, to determine the most appropriate processing route. 

The study is expected to take up to three months to complete and will support a decision to move into the design and planning phase.

A metallurgical test-work program will also be developed and implemented to help validate the process design and VE production specifications. 

The VRFB business was established as a result of TNG producing high specification, commercial-grade vanadium electrolyte in 2016.

TNG plans to produce its own vanadium product from the 100%-owned Mount Peake Vanadium-Titanium-Iron Project in the Northern Territory. 

The company aims to produce 6,000 tonnes per annum of high-purity vanadium pentoxide from the Mount Peake Project, in addition to titanium dioxide pigment and iron ore fines products.

Bushveld and Invinity JV to rent electrolyte to vanadium redox flow battery developers

Fri, 09/11/2020 - 10:16 -- paul Crompton

Vanadium producer Bushveld Minerals has formed a company with Invinity Energy Systems to rent vanadium electrolyte to energy storage system end users. 

The new company is part of Bushveld Minerals' strategy of supplying material, electrolyte and electrolyte rental products to vanadium redox flow battery companies, which it announced last November.

Commercial start for vanadium electrolyte using novel tech in Canada

Canada’s Electrochem Technologies & Materials has started commercial production of all-vanadium equimolar electrolyte solutions directly from vanadium pentoxide purchased on the market by using a novel process.

Production of the electrolyte for vanadium redox flow batteries “is now performed on demand” at Electrochem’s facilities in Quebec, using the company’s proprietary VRFBEX unit.

The process uses VEPT (VanadiumCorp-Electrochem processing technology)— which has been jointly developed with Vancouver-based mining and technology firm VanadiumCorp Resource.

Australia’s first vanadium electrolyte plant points to cheaper product

Antipodean minerals company Australian Vanadium Limited is set to bring vanadium electrolyte production expertise and capability to the country for the first time.

The firm has bought the pilot plant from UK organisation C-Tech Innovation Limited, which will allow the vertical integration of the technology through stand-alone and planned mine-attached facilities.

Vanadium electrolyte projects hope to fulfill commercial redox flow battery needs

Two projects to produce more vanadium electrolyte for the growing vanadium redox flow battery (VRB) market have been launched on opposite ends of the earth.

The first, in Vancouver, Canada, will see Vanadiumcorp Resource Inc. commence a Vanadium Electrolyte Process Partnership (VEPP) at its Lac Dore Vanadium Project.
