NioCorp is developing a superalloy materials project in Southeastern Nebraska with the aim of producing niobium, scandium and titanium. Niobium is used to produce superalloys as well as high strength low alloy steel (“HSLA”), which is a lighter, stronger steel used in automotive, structural and pipeline applications. Scandium is a superalloy material that can be combined with aluminum to make alloys with increased strength and improved corrosion resistance. Scandium is also an essential component of advanced solid oxide fuel cells. Titanium is used in various superalloys and is a key component of pigments used in paper, paint, and plastics, and is also used in aerospace applications, armor, and medical implants.
