Scaling occurs when chemistry conditions cause dissolved mineral salts to precipitate and form solid deposits.  Scale is a problem because it narrows pipe widths and therefore compromises treatment system performance and increases the energy used in transporting aqueous flows through pipes, pumps and other conveyance elements. Wastewater commonly consists of dissolved matter of calcium content […]

Food additives contribute to the overall appeal, convenience, nutritive value, and quality of foods.  Marinco®FCC magnesium oxide is often used as a food additive for powdered foods desiccant (drying agent), color retention, pH modification or as a magnesium mineral supplement.  Marinco®FCC is odorless and non-toxic.

Anaerobic digestion is used for solids reduction and as a method of energy production in wastewater treatment.  Organics digesting bacteria use oxygen that is chemically bound in organic compounds such as starches, proteins, and fats.

Seventeen nutrients have been identified as essential for plant growth.  Without these nutrients, plants cannot complete their life cycles.  Magnesium (Mg) is considered a “macronutrient” – those of the 17 nutrients required in relatively large quantities.

Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties is a manufacturer of many unique and specialty grades of magnesium hydroxide and magnesium oxide. Together, those two chemicals Mg(OH)2 and MgO are in a class of materials called “Magnesia”. The products described below are produced by reacting natural magnesium-rich brine with dolomitic lime under controlled conditions. The grades of synthetic […]

Caustic Potash (KOH) Replacement

Magnesia contributes to many industrial applications.  Two dozen industrial applications for magnesia are listed at this link.

Magnesium hydroxide can offer economic and process benefits in pulp bleaching. Cost savings from the reduction or elimination of certain bleach chemicals can be achieved by employing CellGuard®MH magnesium hydroxide powder as an alternative alkali and cellulose protector. Additional benefits such as a reduction in BOD/COD and anionic trash can improve wastewater treatment and papermaking […]

High purity, light burned MagChem®40 magnesium oxide is moderately reactive and uniformly burned to provide a higher recovery of valuable metals such as cobalt, nickel and copper from acid leach solutions. MagChem®40 can improve MgO utilization efficiency and increase the precipitate grade of the metal giving MagChem®40 superior performance in hydrometallurgy over naturally mined magnesia […]
