Tuesday, 18 April 2017
Africa’s titanium pigment market will have a new player through a technology partnership between Nyanza Light Metals and Avertana of New Zealand.
The partnership between Nyanza Light Metals and Avertana will culminate in the construction of a EUR276.8 million titanium dioxide pigment (TiO2) production plant in the Richards Bay industrial development zone, according to Mining Review Africa.
