CSIRO research aims to create a world scale titanium industry in Australia, based on continuous processing integrated with downstream manufacturing. Titanium is as strong as steel but about half the weight. It's also corrosion resistant and has a high melting point.

Australia has a world-class mineral sands resource base. The titanium-containing minerals ilmenite and rutile are feed stocks for the production of most paints, pigments, plastics and ceramics. There is no titanium metal industry in this country at present, although with our excellent resource base, low energy costs and skilled labour force, Australia represents a natural centre for titanium metal production.
