Chemours Titanium Technologies Minerals Operations expanded its footprint in the state to Jesup, Georgia.
The new facility provides the company with additional access to high-quality concentrated deposits of titanium and zircon mineral sands used to produce Chemours’ Ti-Pure brand of titanium dioxide (TiO₂), which is applied in different types of manufacturing.
The Zircon produced at the Jesup plant will be used in precision casting, and 98% of the water used throughout the plant will be recycled. In addition to producing Zircon, Chemours is world-renowned for its international production of titanium dioxide, which is used for coatings, plastics, and laminates.
The new plant is located at 892 Power Line Road in Jesup. Individuals interested in career opportunities with Chemours are encouraged to visit chemours.com/en/careers for additional information.
