MOSCOW (ICIS)--Crimean Titanium said it would start operating a new 600,000 tonne/year sulphuric acid facility in May, according to an announcement released by the Ukrainian titanium dioxide (Ti02) producer on Wednesday.

Armyansk-based Crimean Titanium currently operates three 180,000 tonne/year sulphuric acid units but plans to decommission one of them. With the opening of the new facility, the company plans a total sulphuric acid capacity of 960,000 tonnes/year, according to Crimean Titanium.

The new sulphuric acid facility is intended to increase the company's titanium dioxide capacity to 120,000 tonnes/year, Crimean Titanium said.

In 2011, the company's Ti02 output was 108,069 tonnes.
