Heavy Oil Ash

Welcome to London Chemicals & Resources Ltd, we specialise in a variety of services relating to heavy oil ash.

Heavy oil ash, often referred to as heavy oil fly ash (HOFA), is a waste byproduct generated from the combustion of heavy fuel oil in power plants and other industrial facilities.

This type of fuel oil contains a high proportion of heavy metals including vanadium, nickel, and sulfur. When the heavy fuel oil is burned, these elements can form part of the resulting ash. The ash is usually carried away with the flue gases, hence the term “fly ash.”

The composition of heavy oil fly ash can vary but it typically contains unburned carbon, various oxides, and significant amounts of heavy metals. Because of its potentially hazardous nature, heavy oil fly ash must be handled and disposed of carefully to prevent environmental contamination.

In recent years, research has been conducted into ways of recovering valuable metals from heavy oil fly ash and reusing the ash in ways that mitigate its environmental impact. For example, it has been studied for use in cement production and as an adsorbent material in wastewater treatment.

What Is Cobalt Hydroxide?

Cobalt(II) hydroxide or cobaltous hydroxide is the inorganic compound with the formula Co(OH)2, consisting of divalent cobalt cations Co2+ and hydroxide anions HO. The pure compound, often called the “beta form” (β-Co(OH)2) is a pink solid insoluble in water. Cobalt

The name is also applied to a related compound, often called “alpha” or “blue” form (α-Co(OH)2), which incorporates other anions in its molecular structure. This compound is blue and rather unstable. 

Cobalt(II) hydroxide is most used as a drying agent for paints, varnishes, and inks, in the preparation of other cobalt compounds, as a catalyst and in the manufacture of battery electrodes.

We can help to supply:

  • Ammonium Metavanadate
  • Ferro-Vanadium
  • Potassium Metavanadate
  • Potassium Orthovanadate
  • Vanadium Pentoxide Powder
  • Vanadyl Sulphate
