    Ilmenite, natural rutile and zircon are transported to the Smelter by rail from an open-pit mine and concentration plant in Brand-se-Baai. The ilmenite is processed in furnaces to produce saleable titanium dioxide slag and pig iron, while the zircon and natural rutile is stored on site for export. Final products are dispatched globally to either Tronox’s pigment operations or third-party customers either in bulk, bags or containers via the port of Saldanha – 150 kilometers north of Cape Town. Namakwa Sands products also support other South African industries.

    Tronox’s Namakwa Sands operations are located on the western cape of South Africa. Namakwa employees use dry mining techniques and upgrade heavy minerals to produce titanium dioxide feedstock suitable for both the chloride and sulphate TiO2 processes. Namakwa Sands also produces zircon, rutile and pig iron. The operation begins with an open-pit mine and concentration plants at Brand-se-Baai, about 385km north of Cape Town. Once Tronox has separated the ore into ilmenite, natural rutile and zircon, rail trucks transport the products 270km to our Smelter at Saldanha Bay.

    In 1922, the Thann Plant became the first in the world to produce TiO2. The plant produces TiO2 through a sulfate-based process, a wet chemical process that uses sulfuric acid to extract and purify TiO2 in anatase crystal form. The raw pigment is then finished into a product with specific performance characteristics for particular end-use applications, essentially in the paper, paint, plastic and rubber markets. Specialty and high-performance TiO2 products produced at Thann include titanium tetrachloride that is used in the manufacture of TiO2, in the automotive industry (pearlescent pigments for automotive paints) and also as a catalyst in the chemical industry. Another product, ultrafine TiO2, is primarily used to improve our environment (air and water pollution control) and in the design of self-cleaning surfaces (photocatalysis).

    The Stallingborough Plant, formerly owned by Cristal, is one of nine manufacturing plants producing titanium dioxide (TiO2) for Tronox, the world’s second-largest producer of TiO2. TiO2 is a bright white powder made from titanium ore that has the ability to pigment virtually any material. It makes possible the opacity, brightness and durability in paint formulas that have made modern paints more cost efficient, easier to use and friendlier to the environment. TiO2 also gives plastics and rubber opacity and whiteness. It is used in such diverse products as printing inks, paper, ceramics, glass, leather, synthetic fibres and colours formulated for art paints.

    Tronox’s Rotterdam Botlek facility is the only titanium dioxide producer in the Netherlands. Centrally located along the largest harbor in Europe, the site began production in 1960 as one of the first chemical companies in the area. Tronox’s predecessor, Kerr-McGee, acquired the operation from Kemira in April 2000. Botlek produces TiO2 using Tronox’s proprietary chloride process. The plant brings a strong focus to maximizing the efficient use of raw materials, chemicals and energy. Its presence in the Rotterdam industrial complex, one of the largest in the world, creates unique opportunities for cooperation between plants that can result in improvements that would not be possible on a stand-alone basis.
