Why Vanadium

Vanadium - A Metal For The Future

Vanadium is in the midst of a bull market, due to Chinese steel demand and the advent of Vanadium Redox Batteries (VRB).

Steel Story
  • Used in the Steel industry as a strengthening agent, creating a lightweight, high temperature alloy.
  • Sichuan Earthquake killed 68,000 people in 2008, and injured a further 130,000. In response, China mandated a significant increase in required vanadium in rebar.
  • In November, 2018, China's new mandate went into full effect.
  • All above ground stockpiles have been depleted, and vanadium is in a shortfall.

VRB

VRB
  • Vanadium is becoming an integral part of the new electric economy.
  • Vanadium redox flow batteries are ideal for grid storage capabilities.
  • Stable, capable of +100,000 recharge cycles without significant degradation, can charge and discharge simultaneously.
US Policies Favour Vanadium
Executive Order 13817, signed on December 20, 2017, lists Vanadium as one of 35 critical metals to the USA.

US House of Representatives passed Amendment 122 to NDAA in June of 2018 to streamline permitting for critical metals.

Amendment 122 aims to accelerate permitting, licensing and work progress.
