Rutile
Rutile is a natural form of Titanium Dioxide. It is a common mineral found in high-temperature and high-pressure rocks. Since only a small number of rutile deposits can be mined economically many different processes have been developed to purify ilmenite (a mineral that contains titanium dioxide and greater amounts of iron impurities) through the reduction of Fe3+ with carbon or hydrogen. The resulting material is called synthetic rutile and contains 90-96 wt% Titanium Dioxide - much more than the 44-65 wt% Titanium Dioxide found in ilmenite.
It is used as the feedstock for the chloride process to titanium dioxide; as an acid refractory bricks raw material; in the manufacture of some optical element; and for applications in photocatalysis and dilute magnetism.

Updated Reports Examining Rutile Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Rutile manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Rutile process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Rutile production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Synthetic Rutile Production from Ilmenite (Benelite Process)

This study comprises a techno-economic analysis of an industrial process for Synthetic Rutile production from ilmenite in a United States-based facility. In this process, ilmenite is reduced to transform trivalent iron into the divalent form, then the reduced iron is leached with acid, producing Synthetic Rutile.

The cost analyses presented in the report Rutile E11A target a 200 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Synthetic Rutile Production from Leucoxene (Becher Process)

This report analyses the economics of Synthetic Rutile production from leucoxene in a United States-based facility. In this process, ilmenite is oxidized forming iron(III) oxide. Subsequently, the iron(III) oxide is reduced to its metalic form, which is then separated from the product by aeration and leaching with acid, resulting in Synthetic Rutile.

About Rutile. Rutile is a natural form of Titanium Dioxide. It is a common mineral found in high-temperature and high-pressure rocks. Since only a small number of rutile deposits can be mined economically many different processes have been developed to purify ilmenite (a mineral that contains titanium dioxide and greater amounts of iron impurities) through the reduction of Fe3+ with carbon or hydrogen.

Rutile Uses. It is used as the feedstock for the chloride process to titanium dioxide; as an acid refractory bricks raw material; in the manufacture of some optical element; and for applications in photocatalysis and dilute magnetism.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
