TiO₂ and Carbon Capture: Enhancing Climate Change Mitigation

Titanium dioxide (TiO₂) is a widely used material with applications in various industries. It has been extensively studied and is considered promising for addressing climate change. As climate change becomes an increasingly urgent issue, there is a need for sustainable and affordable solutions to mitigate its impacts. One such solution is carbon capture technology, which aims to reduce the concentration of CO₂ in the atmosphere. This technology can be deployed through direct air capture (DAC) or point source capture (PSC).

Traditional carbon capture methods have been costly and energy-intensive, typically involving liquid processes. However, solid routes have emerged as a more cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative. Carbon capture solid technology involves coating a sorbent, such as an amine, onto a solid material. Titanium dioxide has shown promise as a support material due to its ability to be shaped and extruded, as well as its inertness and stability.

Tronox is taking on the challenge of developing a carbon capture technology that utilizes a low-carbon footprint material. We believe that our range of ultrafine TiO₂ can deliver high performance with a minimal carbon footprint. In the future Tronox aims to offer a support material for carbon capture technologies that combines exceptional performance with carbon neutrality.
