Title: Methods of producing a titanium product

Abstract

A method (500) for producing a titanium product is disclosed. The method (500) can include obtaining TiO2-slag (501) and reducing impurities in the TiO2-slag (502) to form purified TiO2 (503). The method (500) can also include reducing the purified TiO2 using a metallic reducing agent (504) to form a hydrogenated titanium product comprising TiH2 (505). The hydrogenated titanium product can be dehydrogenated (506) to form a titanium product (508). The titanium product can also be optionally deoxygenated (507) to reduce oxygen content.
