Magnesium is a chemical element with the symbol Mg and atomic number 12. It is a shiny gray solid metal that ignites easily in air and burns with a bright light. This element is produced in large, aging stars from the sequential addition of three helium nuclei to a carbon nucleus. This element is produced in large, aging stars from the sequential addition of three helium nuclei to a carbon nucleus.
Magnesium is the eighth most abundant element in the Earth’s crust. It is found in large deposits in minerals such as serpentine, magnesite and dolomite as well as sea brines.
Joseph Black was the first to identify magnesium as an element in 1755.
Anticipated future design changes incorporating lighter metals point to dramatic increases in demand for magnesium in the automotive industry, aerospace, rail, and other transportation industries. Other future growth in Magnesium Oxide applications includes magnesium batteries, magnesium wallboard, and cement.
Magnesium is a lightweight metal, 33% lighter than aluminum. We anticipate significant worldwide growth in demand for magnesium as countries focus on reducing fossil fuel consumption and carbon production.
Magnesium Wall Board that is fireproof, smoke-proof, waterproof, mold and mildew proof, and termite-proof. It also reduces deforestation.
Magnesium Oxide other uses include:
Magnesium Cement starts at 9000 psi – 45,000 psi making it last thousands of years, it absorbs CO2 emissions as it sets and cures. Environmentally friendly non-toxic cement. It requires 20-40% energy compared to traditional Portland / Inland Cement.
Magnesium nitrate fertilizer to replenish magnesium minerals and nutrients to our agriculture industry. A highly water-soluble magnesium nitrate can be applied as foliar feeding or through irrigation systems. Ideally suited for the use in the prevention and the correction of magnesium deficiency in agriculture vegetables and plants.
Magnesium Batteries / secondary cell batteries are an active research topic, specifically as an alternative, Magnesium Batteries (2-ions)… To replace lithium-ion batteries(1-ion). Magnesium-ion battery has long been attractive not only because it’s less likely to overheat, but also has up to twelve times the energy density of a lithium-ion battery and its charge-discharge efficiency is five times greater.
