This Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties (MMMS) blog comments on portions of the latest United States Geological Service of MAGNESIUM COMPOUNDS. We reference independent USGS data to support our “big picture” blog statements. The latest USGS report is available in full online at: https://minerals.usgs.gov/minerals/pubs/commodity/magnesium/mcs-2018-mgcom.pdf The MMMS plant in Manistee, MI is a major producer of magnesia […]

For decades, caustic soda has been known for price and supply volatility. As a result, it is not uncommon for current purchasers of caustic soda solution to investigate “caustic soda replacement”, “caustic soda substitution”, “caustic soda supplementation”, “caustic soda partial substitution”, or to be interested in “caustic soda comparison” with other “alternative sources of alkalinity” […]

Magnesium hydroxide is ”slightly soluble in water at room temperature”. “If magnesium hydroxide is only slightly soluble in water, how would it function in my treatment process?” Let’s provide an answer to that question! Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties produces a high-solids, high-stability magnesium hydroxide slurry. Liquid slurry is magnesium hydroxide particles suspended in water. Magnesium […]

Wastes generated from industrial processes can be unpredictable, inconsistent and highly variable. Acidic industrial wastes are commonly neutralized with alkalis. The addition of alkalis alters the concentrations of dissolved and suspended solids, facilitating their separation by sedimentation. Sedimentation is the separation of solid particles from water by gravitational settling. In industrial wastewater treatment, the volume […]

Not all alkalinity agents provide equal treatment.  A very important metric in alkalinity technology selection is the amount of alkalinity contributed with each gallon injected into treatment systems. Greater alkalinity contribution offers lower amount of chemical agent required, lower chemical costs, and lower transportation costs. FloMag®H Magnesium Hydroxide Slurry is such a high-contribution treatment agent. […]

Magnesium hydroxide is trusted by many of North America’s major corporations for wastewater neutralization, pH adjustment, and alkalinity supplementation by delivering a compelling envelope of technical, economic, and safety benefits. To deliver the highest quality engineering and technical support, Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties established the Engineering & Applications Center more than 40 years ago to […]

“Reduce – Reuse – Recycle” has become a common way of thinking. Water industry thinking has taken big steps toward making this slogan a reality in everyday treatment operations.  Waste treatment facilities have become resource recovery stations, enabling reuse of water resources. These recovery stations not only prevent organics and excess nutrients from entering our […]
