Velta plans to turn a flooded coal mine into an innovative plant

2 min read

      Velta LLC has chosen Ukraine as the country where it will build a titanium powder production plant that will operate based on its own innovative method. The patent offices of both Ukraine and the United States are already processing the company's application for a copyright on the new titanium metal production method.

      At the same time, Velta’s own design bureau is designing the facility with a view to build it on the recently acquired site in the Novomyrhorod district in Kirovohrad region.

       The company leased a 12.7-hectare industrial land plot for 29 years. Its grounds were previously used by the Novomyrhorodska mine that extracted lignite coal. After 16 years of operation, the mine was liquidated by flooding, leaving its 1,500 workers unemployed.

      “The vertical integration of our company within the district leads to a logical creation of an industrial park and gives a good example of the reindustrialization of the Soviet industrial heritage. If the Verkhovna Rada will pass the bills on the industrial parks and the state institutions provide incentives to such industrial objects, it will give a significant boon to the development of the country", said Andriy Brodsky, CEO of Velta.

Production and Commercial Company Velta LLC owns Likarivske and Byrzulivske deposits of ilmenite in the Kirovograd region. For the last nine years, the latter has been serving as the basis of a mining and processing complex that extracts and processes titanium ore. Velta holds 2% of the global market share for titanium raw materials.

In 2017, the company had established the Velta RD Titan research center that developed an innovative technology for the titanium metal production.
