Cristal mining – Kemerton Site

Location: 24km North of Bunbury, WA

Date: February 2017

Customer: Cristal


The Kemerton plant occupies a 55-hectare site that it shares with satellite plants supplying raw materials such as chlorine, caustic soda, gaseous oxygen and nitrogen. The plant produces TiO2 through the chloride process, which uses chlorine to react with titanium bearing ores found in the south west of Western Australia.


GRP were asked to provide a chemical tank to hold caustic soda and manufactured a tank 3.6m diameter and 3.8m in height made from specific resins to resist the caustic soda which was successfully installed in February 2017.
