VanadiumCorp partnered with Electrochem Technologies & Materials Inc. after a decade of vanadium resource development in Quebec, Canada. VanadiumCorp chose to explore innovative approaches for processing to address the global shortage of battery grade vanadium. Conventional steel and vanadium production methods have not changed in over 60 years. They are low yield, inefficient and damaging to the environment – emitting over two tons of carbon for every ton of product. With this opportunity for innovation, Francois Cardarelli President and Owner of Electrochem invented a new chemical process in joint partnership with VanadiumCorp that has the potential to revolutionize energy storage, steel making, vanadium applications, iron production, titanium industries and more.

The patent-pending VanadiumCorp-Electrochem Process Technology recovers maximum value of all contained metals from single source feedstocks and wastes while integrating it with Electrochem’s patented electrowinning technology aimed to replace conventional iron and steelmaking allows to use half the energy and a negligible carbon footprint.
