With more than 200 years of collective experience in the design and operation of TiO2 plants globally, TCSG experts are able to assist with any aspect of process development and optimization.

TCSG experts are often invited to do independent reviews of novel process developments to help optimize the process flow sheet, review laboratory and pilot scale results, assist with pilot and demonstration plant design, commissioning and optimization and independently review progress and advise on priorities and interpretation of results.

TCSG has developed comprehensive mass and energy balances and together with its benchmark models, supported by extensive hands-on experience in Continuous Improvement, allows TCSG experts to identify, scope and implement improvements in designs and operating plants covering product quality, production capacity, manufacturing cost and waste treatment. A holistic approach helps to find the right balance between these imperatives.

Technology packages are available for main and ancillary process sections of the titanium dioxide process. Technology packages can cover only Theory of Operation, or can be expanded to a Basic Design, Detailed Design or Turn-key Package. These technology packages are typically used for:

  • optimization or upgrading of existing process sections,
  • automation of operations,
  • replacement of selected process sections with more efficient technology and/or equipment,
  • add-ons – for example to convert from anatase to rutile products or for additional treatment of gaseous, liquid or solid wastes to meet increased treatment requirements to produce co-products.

TCSG provides off-line and on-site support with the implementation of technology packages to any degree required by the client.
