As well as the titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment industry, this chapter provides some background on the titanium minerals (also known as titanium feedstock) used to produce TiO2 pigment. For further details on the titanium feedstock industry, refer to TZMI's Titanium Feedstock Annual Review 2014. Raw titanium minerals occur in varying concentrations within alluvial deposits, which are referred to as mineral or beach sands. Alluvial deposits originate in ancient beach and river systems and generally include several heavy minerals (HM), with raw titanium minerals and zircon often being primary matter.
Titanium minerals can also be sourced from rutile and ilmenite hard rock deposits. As well as raw titanium minerals, some alluvial deposits are highly prospective for zircon. Zircon can be produced in conjunction with titanium feedstock, either as the principal product or as a co-product.
Of the TiO2 minerals mined and processed, more than 90% is used for pigment production. TiO2 pigment is produced via two processes: chloride and sulfate. The remaining TiO2 feedstock is used to manufacture titanium metal and other minor uses.
Figure 2.1 depicts the overall TiO2 supply chain, from the mining of the mineral to its final application.
