META Scandium products

META Nikel-Kobalt A.Ş produced their first Scandium product using MEAB’s solvent extraction mixer-settler mini-pilot plant. Scandium was separated from a Nickel and Cobalt HPAL production plant in Gördes, Turkey. META produced about 600 grams of Sc product in the form of Ammonium-Scandium-Hexafuoride ((NH4)3ScF6). After calcination, they also converted (NH4)3ScF6 to Scandium fluoride (ScF3) suitable for molten salt or metallothermic reduction.
