With over 50 years of operational success, Hamilton’s Titanium Dioxide (Ti02) manufacturing operation is the 3rd largest of its kind in the world with annual production capacity of approximately 225,000 tonnes. We are a global supplier to the paint and plastics industry.
The Hamilton site also includes a plant that employs an electrolytic process for the production of approximately 140,000 tonnes per year of sodium chlorate, primarily used in an environmentally preferred pulp bleaching process. The chlorate plant is a key supplier to major pulp and paper manufacturers.
The dual plant-site benefits enjoy synergies in the sharing of process utilities, and the Chlorate process by-product is supplied as fuel for the site steam generation.
