THE HIGHEST-PURITY V2O5 IN THE WORLD
U.S. Vanadium produces and sells a range of specialty vanadium chemicals, including the highest-purity Vanadium Pentoxide (V205) in the world from its plant in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
TechMet is part of an industry consortium that acquired the plant in 2019. U.S. Vanadium has long been a supplier of high-performance vanadium products to a variety of innovation-driven industries both in the U.S. and around the world and is at the forefront of the adoption of Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries (“VRFB”) by producing and recycling the liquid electrolyte.
- One of the world’s leading producers and suppliers of vanadium alloys and chemicals, the facility has been in operation for over 50 years.
- It has capacity to process 12 million lbs./year of vanadium oxides and consistently produces the highest-purity V2O5 and V2O3 in the world as a result of the unique processes employed.
- VRFBs are increasingly seen as a preferred and complementary technology for large-scale grid energy storage particularly as a means of supporting greater deployment of intermittent generation technologies such as solar and wind energy as they have an ability to hold power for longer periods than Li-ion batteries and have much longer lifespans.
