What is Vanadium?
Vanadium is… “The Element That Could Change the World” by Bob Johnstone October 2008 issue; published online September 29, 2008
Vanadium is a soft, ductile metal primarily used in steel alloy’s, green technology and specialty steels.
All crude steel requires vanadium to make it strong enough for commercial uses
Vanadium enriched steel is used in a variety of applications in construction, infrastructure and transport.
Vanadium has pushed engineering, construction and design to new heights and limits
Vanadium is used in many products. Vanadium in tools for strength, in surgical instruments for stain resistant qualities and golf clubs as a titanium bonding agent
Vanadium is a major component to vehicles, providing the strength to construct transmissions, gears, transaxles and vehicle chassis
Bridges and roads rely on vanadium enriched steel and rebar
Vanadium is very important to the construction of jet engines due to it’s high tolerance to heat.
Due to a high neutron cross section, vanadium is the safest material for nuclear power plant construction
Smart Glass protects against harmful UV rays and lowers energy usage. Vanadium is the chief ingredient in Smart Glass.
Vanadium battery technology provides faster recharging and longevity than current batteries on the market.
Vanadium is the only material that can withstand the extreme heat of re-entry into our atmosphere Vanadium is the only material on the planet that can withstand the intense heat of re-entry into our atmosphere
All vehicles leaving Earth’s atmosphere need vanadium in order to survive in space In fact, all vehicles that leave earth’s atmosphere must be built with a high vanadium content
China has halted all raw vanadium exports for global supply • There have been limited vanadium sources developed over the past decade
Vanadium prices have more than tripled over the past decade • Vanadium usage has increased dramatically year to year for the past decade
Vanadium is the building block civilization is being built on
