Agrawal, B K and Menon, M P and Bhatnagar, P P (1960) Recovery of Vanadium Pentoxide from Vanadium Bearing Titaniferrous Magnetites Projected Pilot Plant Studies. In: Symposium on Pilot Plants in Metallurgical Research and Development, 15-18/02/1960, Jamshedpur.
The treatment of vanadium bearing ores for the recovery of vanadium pentoxide is not new to India. A plant capable of producing 250 lbs. of vanadium pentoxide per day was set up at Jamshedpur during World War II by the Tata Iron & Steel Co. Ltd., but as the demand of ferro-vanadium decreased considerably after the war, the plant had to be shut down. A company was also set up for the extraction of vanadium at Rairangpur during World War II and it is reported that the plant went-into production in September, 1945 and stopped work in April 1946 and has since been lying idle.Various reasons, viz., high cost of production, lack of demand etc. have been assigned for closing down the plant. With the country's industrial development and the establishment of'"the alloy and tool steel industry, as envisaged in the 3rd Five Year Plan, it is anticipated that the demand of ferro-vanadium will increase consid-erably.
