Safety Expertise for Titanium Chemicals – A Critical Differentiator for Tronox

Tronox’s Thann, France plant is the largest European supplier of titanium chemicals (TiCl₄, TiOCl₂ and TiOSO₄) and specializes in safely manufacturing and shipping these chemicals worldwide in compliance with the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations. Since the start of this business more than 65 years ago, we have developed expertise in safety, which extends beyond our production site.

Tronox’s Technical Service representatives are at the forefront of the product qualification process and usage from the very beginning. Due to its high sensitivity to humidity, the safe storing and handling of TiCl₄ is a high priority for Tronox. Customer support starts with a risk assessment at customers’ sites, ensuring TiCl₄ can and will be handled safely. Our technical service team then provides on-site training on handling TiCl₄ that involves both the customer’s employees and local authorities. Over the past 20 years, Tronox has delivered around 170 training sessions to more than 3,800 individuals across the globe. Those risk assessments at customers’ locations are done at the various stages of the product qualification, from laboratory to pilot and industrial scale. As part of Tronox’s quality system, these assessments are typically updated every five years and are based on best practices, as recommended by the TiCl₄ CEFIC group at the European Titanium Dioxide Manufacturers Association (TDMA).

Tronox offers a wide range of fit-for-purpose packaging solutions from certified transport companies that ensure safe loading, unloading, transportation and storage to meet customer-specific needs. TiCl₄ returnable packaging is rotated between Tronox and the customer premises; keeping the packaging fleet in good condition is key to securing product quality and safety. In some territories, our packaging goes beyond the regulatory requirements for safety, which is yet another Tronox differentiator recognized and appreciated by customers.

Overall, from customer inquiry to product delivery and beyond, Tronox remains involved through effective coordination between its technical service, marketing, sales and logistics teams, offering a very high level of security and professionalism to our valued customers.
