A Survey of the Secondary Titanium Market.
NTIS: PB 207 372 :17 pages
The utilization of secondary titanium was determined in a study by the Bureau of Mines. A 10-year statistical table showing supply and distribution patterns is presented in this report. Over the total 10-year period, estimated scrap consumption is larger than estimated scrap supply. Trends from the estimated data indicate that titanium is in short supply and probably will continue to be in the future. Because of higher processing costs for recycled scrap, scrap will tend to migrate to the steel and aluminum industries and to ferrotitanium production and exports. Nonrecoverable losses of titanium metal during processing was determined to be a potential area for research. (Out of print.)
