  • Magnesium oxide, or magnesia, is a white solid mineral that occurs naturally as periclase and is a source of magnesium.  It has an empirical formula of MgO. It is formed by an ionic bond between one magnesium and one oxygen atom.
  • Magnesium, light metal has a density of 1783 kg/m3, which is two thirds of aluminium and one sixth of steel. The strength-to-weight ratio of magnesium is 158 kNm/kg, which is higher than 130 kNm/kg for pure aluminium. This high strength-to-weight ratio is the principal driver for the increasing demand of this metal
  • There are two principal routes for producing magnesium. First, an electrolytic route
    in which liquid magnesium is won from magnesium chloride. The source of magnesium can be from sea water, brine, dolomite, magnesite, and carnallite. The other process involves reduction of magnesium ores by a reactant
  • Electrolytic producers in the west have been replaced by Chinese pyrometallurgical
    production via the the Pidgeon process
  • The capital cost for Australia Magnesium (AM) Process using an electrolytic route was estimated to be $10,000/tonne Mg, while the capital cost for the Pidgeon process was estimated to be $3,000/tonne Mg in 2008
  • The global supply of magnesia and magnesium compounds is expected to be sufficient to meet global demand for the next few years only
