New Process Route for ATR Bars
Technicians from CBMM´s Technology Center developed a new process route to produce high niobium content bars (ATR) for metallic niobium high purity ingots.
Technicians from CBMM´s Technology Center in Araxá developed a new route for the production of high niobium content bars (ATR) for metallic niobium high purity ingots. This process route increased the niobium recovery in about 10% as well as productivity more than double compared with the previous process route
One of CBMM's environmental priorities is to increase the percent of recirculated water used during the manufacturing process.
The staff of CBMM's Process Research Center is working to increase the percentage of recirculated water used during the Company's manufacturing processes.
Continuous investments to reduce the use of fresh water through increasing process productivity and efficiency are paying off: 96% of the water currently used in the manufacturing process is recirculated.
