Home / Client News / Sovereign Metals Limited: Sovereign’s Rutile to Reduce Carbon Footprint

Sovereign Metals Limited (ASX:SVM; AIM:SVML) (Sovereign or the Company) is pleased to announce the results of an expanded Life Cycle Assessment Study (LCA or Study) assessing the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of natural rutile produced at the Company’s Kasiya Rutile Project (Kasiya) in Malawi.

The Study concludes that Sovereign’s natural rutile product is expected to have substantially lower GWP (Scope 1, 2 and 3 scope emissions) when compared to other titanium feedstock alternatives produced by upgrading ilmenite (i.e., synthetic rutile and titania slag). Using natural rutile from Kasiya as titanium feedstock for the chloride pigment process would significantly reduce Scope 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas emissions. Titanium feedstock is a key component of various industrial and consumer products. Therefore, utilising natural rutile such as from Kasiya, as direct use titanium feedstock could hold the solution to developing low-carbon footprint products including low carbon paints.
