US Vanadium acquires Hot Springs vanadium production facility in Arkansas

U.S. Vanadium Holding Co. LLC acquired the Hot Springs vanadium pentoxide production facility in Hot Springs, Ark. Investors in U.S. Vanadium include TechMet Ltd., Elysee Development Corp. and The Lind Partners LLC.

The company signed an agreement in August to acquire Evraz Stratcor Inc., a private company that owns and operates the vanadium facility.

U.S. Vanadium Holding said Oct. 14 that it acquired Hot Springs from a leading Russian steel conglomerate, without disclosing terms. The company said the operation is the only high-purity vanadium production facility in the U.S., and it also produces downstream vanadium-based chemicals for customers in the catalyst, chemical, petrochemical, titanium and energy storage industries.

Over the last year, U.S. Vanadium has brought production back online through tolling contracts with the facility, after production declined from full capacity to very low levels between 2008 and 2018 under the previous owner.

The company said it plans to restore production at the facility to its full nameplate processing capacity of about 12 million pounds of vanadium pentoxide per year.

TechMet Chairman and CEO Brian Menell said vanadium is a significant contributor to the technology metals market, and TechMet predicts significant growth in the market over the coming years.
