Uses of new Molybdenum

First use of Molybdenum

Use 2015: 230,000 MT Mo contained.

The chart above refers to molybdenum produced from mined ore, not to scrap material recycled by chemical processes or remelting; hence the name "new molybdenum."

About 22% of this material is used to make molybdenum grade stainless steel, while constructional steel, tool and high speed steel and cast iron, taken together use an additional 57%. The remaining 23% is used in upgraded products including molybdenum chemical compounds, lubricant grade MoS2 and molybdenum metal.
