TANIOBIS GmbH (CEO: Kazuhiko Iida), a subsidiary of JX Metals Corporation, in collaboration with Alloyed Ltd., has published a research paper titled "Tailored Niobium-Based Alloys for Additive Manufacturing: From Powder Production to Parameter Optimization." The authors of this publication have now been honored with the prestigious Gustaf Ekeberg Prize. The Ekeberg Award is presented annually by the Tantalum-Niobium International Study Center (T.I.C.) to recognize outstanding contributions to tantalum research and innovation.
As part of the HVBatCycle (high voltage battery recycling) project, TANIOBIS has put the lithium-ion battery (LIB) recycling facility into operation. The project’s objective was to develop sustainable, energy-efficient processes throughout the HV battery value chain, ultimately creating a closed battery materials loop. This has now been achieved.
TANIOBIS' new research and production plant for chlorides at the Goslar site enables the development of new high-performance materials for the electronics and energy industries. The company is expanding its product range and responding to growing market interest in high-purity chlorides. At the same time, the facility in Laufenburg is being modernized in order to continue producing the volume and materials demanded by the market.
TANIOBIS GmbH collaborates with Volkswagen-led research team to advance battery-recycling technology
TANIOBIS GmbH and Partners from the industrial and scientific communities want to jointly prove that the most valuable components of traction batteries can be recovered and reused several times in succession through recycling. The "HVBatCycle" research consortium aims to keep cathode metals, electrolyte and graphite permanently in a closed material cycle. Under the leadership of the Volkswagen Group, TANIOBIS GmbH, J. Schmalz GmbH, Viscom AG have been working together with researchers from RWTH Aachen University, TU Braunschweig and the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films for three years to research and develop the necessary processes. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action.
GOSLAR. Zum 1100. Stadtjubiläum wird das Hilfsprojekt „Wald für morgen“ für jedes Goslarer Kind einen Baum pflanzen. Zudem verbinden im Anschluss an die Pflanzaktion zahlreiche Workshops im Rahmen des Projektes „Junge Kunst – mein Wald für Morgen" bis September Kunst und Natur miteinander. Auch TANIOBIS beteiligt sich als Sponsor an der Aktion. Damit möchte das Goslarer Unternehmen insbesondere die Jüngsten der Gemeinschaft für die Themen Nachhaltigkeit und Umweltschutz sensibilisieren.
