Overview

Molybdenum is used for making steel strong and corrosion resistant and is required wherever steel faces tough, challenging conditions, such as offshore drilling rigs, power plants, ships, turbine engines, tools, hospital equipment and desalination plants.

It plays an important role in environmental protection, since it is included in nuclear reactors and oil and gas pipelines to prevent leaks and as a catalyst in oil refining to reduce sulfur in fuels.

Molybdenum is also valued as a specialty high-performance lubricant and is a component in flame retardants, fertilizers and even vitamin supplements.
