Optimise pigment production and feedstock grade in the mineral sands value-chain
Feedstock grade is a critical determinant of pigment production volumes. In the case of titanium feedstock, higher grade feed entering the plant results in more pigment produced and consequently less waste. Chloride pigment plants mostly use a blend of different feedstocks with different titanium dioxide grades. Indeed, most chloride pigment plants are orientated to higher grade feedstocks - plants are typically large and sophisticated, and operational efficiency is highly dependent on specifications of the feedstock blends.
Optimise plant feeds and reduce waste
BlendOpt can assist pigment production by designing optimised feed and processing schedules using Artificial Intelligence and collaborative mathematical optimisation that leverages the expertise of your decision makers, resulting in waste minimisation, reduced costs and improved margins, while keeping your blends within a desired range of control.
Forecast, plan and respond effectively to variation
Pigment plant capacity utilisation is closely correlated to industrial production and GDP trends - BlendOpt's integrated scheduling and forecasting/planning features can respond to variation and disruptions effectively allowing producers to make consistent high quality decisions with their plant operations.
