This chapter explores the technology of vanadium recovery from raw materials and the production of vanadium ferroalloys (FeV, FeSiV, FeMnV, and FeVN). The properties of vanadium and its main reactions with other elements are outlined. Different sources of vanadium are presented, and the methods used for processing vanadium slags and vanadium pentoxide are listed. Smelting of ferrovanadium alloys in combination with silicon and aluminum reduction is presented. © 2013
