Unlocking Titanium with Taso Arima

Titanium is an engineer’s dream. Lighter than steel yet stronger than aluminum and extraordinarily corrosion resistant, titanium can help facilitate the clean energy transition—from EVs to wind turbines. Yet it typically remains the preserve of space programs and Swiss watches. The current process for manufacturing titanium is expensive, complex, toxic and highly carbon intensive. Additionally, like many critical metals, the supply chain is dominated by foreign nations including China and Russia. Titanium is crucial to our national defense, the space industry and our advanced industries, and the supply chain stakes are high. Here to discuss titanium and its potential is Anastasios Arima, co-founder and CEO of IperionX, a US based metals technology company.
