  • WhitePaper An Overview of Non-Ferrous Niobium Applications in the Renewable Energy Sector

    A step-change breakthrough to transition from fossil fuel dependency to cleaner, renewable energy sources relies on the development of new technologies that improve energy efficiency, reliability, and cost attainment, thereby overcoming barriers to mass market adoption. In this paper, you will learn how non-ferrous niobium technologies are emerging as part of the solution. Specifically, laboratory and prototype trials have revealed promising opportunities for both niobium and its oxides in product applications for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), solar panels, smart windows and piezoelectricity. To learn more, download “Niobium Material Technology in the Renewable Energy Sector.”

  • WhitePaper Beyond the Tipping Point: Steel Futures Turn a Corner

    No one expected steel futures to steal the spotlight from and outshine the physical market overnight. It simply wasn’t on the cards. Too much tradition, too many entrenched commercial relationships, too diverse a product mix, and too little familiarity with the dynamics of the futures market and exchange trading. Add to that the resistance that comes with the prospect of quantum change and a market landscape that appears tranquil compared to the hyper-volatile conditions that characterize the current ferrous metals arena. More than a decade-and-a-half since early proponents first launched efforts to make futures a fixture of deal making, read how the tonnage transacted on CME Group in 2019 marks the highest monthly volume recorded in the history of Steel Futures since its’ launch in 2003.

  • WhitePaper Discover How Steelmakers Can Meet Demand for Taller Wind Towers With Niobium

    To harvest the more dependable wind resources at higher altitudes, and for greater energy output and efficiency, wind tower hub heights of 100 meters (328 feet) and higher are becoming the new standard, up from 80 meters (262.5 feet) only 15 years ago. Unlike traditional steels unable to scale to the taller hub height, low carbon structural steel containing Niobium offers a solution. Discover how steel can maintain its advantage over alternative wind tower materials by downloading this white paper from CBMM North America, Inc.
