The Titanium Centre of Competence (TiCoC), hosted by the CSIR and funded by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), has developed a suite of complementary technologies to help South Africa add value to its vast resources of titanium. Key to this programme is the development and commercialisation of a novel process for producing primary titanium metal, hence the establishment of a small-scale titanium pilot plant on the CSIR campus in Pretoria, focused on up-scaling the production of titanium metal powder.
