Chromium Oxide (a.k.a. Chromium(III) Oxide) is an inorganic compound, one of most important oxides of chromium, as the +3 oxidation state is the most stable of chromium. It occurs naturally as the mineral eskolaite, and appears as a green, hard, and brittle material, not readily attacked by acids. The production of commercial Chromium Oxide carried out the reduction of an alkali dichromate in a self-sustaining dry reaction by a reducing agent such as sulfur, carbon, starch, wood flour, or ammonium chloride. Chromium Oxide is used in paints, inks, glasses, and even to colouring cements, due to its stability to alkalies.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Chromium Oxide production costs. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2023).
