LONDON, March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- World vanadium consumption peaked at 78,000t V in 2012, according to a new study by Roskill. Growth in vanadium demand is set to continue through 2013 and beyond, underpinned chiefly by growth in steel consumption in developing nations for construction purposes. However, the precise rate of growth in consumption will be dependent on a number of factors, most notably new regulations for Chinese high-strength construction steel, which have...

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bio DG announced today that its patent for a novel metal system for use as biodegradable material in developing implantable medical devices was granted by the U.S. Patent Office on August 21, 2012. Bio DG's first-of-its-kind biodegradable alloys are primarily metallic and provide high strength when first implanted, then gradually erode in a predictable and biocompatible manner. These alloys are engineered to address the limitations of current...

The new alloys are lighter and less expensive, but are still tough and ductile enough for use in aerospace applications Scientists from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have created a range of structural metallic-glass composites, based in titanium, that are lighter and less expensive than any the group had previously created, while still maintaining their toughness and ductility--the ability to be deformed without breaking. A paper describing these breakthrough metallic-glass...
