“Green is not a colour – its an attitude”
TAM’s mandate is to develop TAM and its primary subsidiaries TAM ALLOYS & TAM ENERGY into major contributors in their respective fields, guided by the Gideotech Group’s underlying emphasis on doing things green and clean.
The question we are often asked is, how do you link a mineral beneficiation business to an energy storage business?
The answer is simple – TAM has acquired more than 20 million tons of an Iron, Titanium & Vanadium Tailing Stockpile with the following composition – 54% Iron, 12,5% Titanium and 0,46% Vanadium. As TAM has also developed TAM Energy (Pty) Ltd into an energy storage company focussed on supplying the market with Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries (VRFB), it was imperative that TAM secured a long term source of V2O5 (Vanadium Pentoxide) for our Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries (VRFB).
The 20 million ton FeTiV stockpile has more than 90,000 tons of V2O5 still locked up and TAM Alloys will beneficiate this resource to ensure that TAM Energy has a long term supply of Vanadium. One of the primary objectives of TAM Alloys is to be able to produce V2O5 at ultra competitive prices. By doing so, it positions TAM Energy favourably in the Vanadium Battery industry as the Vanadium makes up approximately 40% of the total costs of a VRFB. Being able to produce Vanadium at competitive pricing is a key element to TAM’s success.
