Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The raw materials base and volumes of Russian production and consumption of small tonnage (microalloying) ferroalloys for 2002–2018 have been considered. In Russia there are sufficient reserves of raw materials and developed deposits of vanadium, titanium, tungsten, molybdenum, niobium and rare earth metals (REM), but for each type of the raw material there are issues in the development of these resources. Support is needed for investment projects in the extraction of mineral raw materials and production of niobium, rare-earth metals, tungsten and boron ferroalloys. At the same time, stabilization of import flows is necessary to obtain the required amount of titanium and boron concentrates from participants of the Customs Union, Eurasian Economic Union, BRICS and other suppliers.
