Who we are


The Plan


Nyanza Light Metals was set up by Arkein Capital Partners in 2011 for the purpose of exploring the possibility of producing titanium dioxide (TiO₂) pigment from conventional ilmenite ores, rutile slags and blending waste titanium slags, which are in abundance in South Africa.

Nyanza's manufacturing operation will produce 80,000 tons per annum of TiO₂ pigment which is used in paints and plastics, cosmetics, inks, dyes and a whole range of other everyday products. The plant will be located in the Richards Bay Industrial Development Zone (IDZ) situated in Alton, Richards Bay, 190km north-east of Durban in South Africa.
