In accordance with the investment plan of PJSC Corporation "VSMPO-AVISMA", reconstruction of the carnallite electrolysis unit, operating at the magnesium production site, is planned.
At the moment at the Berezniki site, chlorine gas is used to obtain titanium tetrachloride. Chlorine is coming from the existing magnesium production (electrolysis of carnallite, electrolysis of magnesium chloride). Organization of production at the site of the chloride method of electrolysis of an aqueous solution of rock salt will reduce the cost and technological and production risks and dependence associated with the supply of carnallite to third-party buyers.
