The MER-DuPont Titanium Consortium in Tucson, AZ recently received a $3.8 million increment of a $5.7 million technology investment agreement. Under the agreement, the consortium will design, build and demonstrate an electrolyzer to produce low-cost titanium from titanium oxide. Work will be performed in Tucson, AZ (88%) and Wilmington, DE (12%) and will be completed in August 2008 (HR0011-06-3-0007).
