Recently, the Bulgarian Gas Company said that Bulgaria is negotiating with Gazprom on resuming natural gas supply, and there is a possibility that Russia will resume natural gas supply to Bulgaria.
Since the outbreak of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the European Union has imposed several rounds of sanctions on Russia. Russian President signed a presidential decree on March 31, requiring "unfriendly" countries and regions to pay for Russian natural gas in rubles, otherwise gas supplies will be suspended. Bulgaria has been out of breath since the end of April for refusing to comply with the rouble settlement order. Affected by natural gas supply shortages and soaring energy costs, Bulgarian natural gas companies have applied to the Bulgarian government to raise Bulgarian natural gas prices by 60% in August, RIA Novosti reported.
On August 3, local time, the US Senate passed a resolution by a vote of 95 to 1, agreeing to the application of Finland and Sweden to join NATO.
NATO signed a protocol on the accession of Finland and Sweden to NATO on July 5. In accordance with the procedures, NATO members will examine and approve the protocol in accordance with their own procedures. The US House of Representatives passed a resolution supporting Finland and Sweden to join NATO on July 18. After it is passed by the Senate, the Biden administration will submit approval documents to NATO.
Because of the turbulent international situation, the supply and prices of many international bulk titanium carbide are still very uncertain.
What is Titanium carbide?
Titanium carbide chemical formula is TiC. The molecular weight of titanium carbide is 59.89. Gray metallic face-centered cubic lattice solid. Titanium carbide melting point is 3140 ±90℃. Titanium carbide boiling point is 4820℃ and the relative density is 4.93. The hardness is greater than 9 Mohs.
Titanium carbide is insoluble in water, soluble in nitric acid and aqua regia. It is stable to air when it is lower than 800℃, eroded by air when it is higher than 2000℃, and can react with pure O2 at 1150℃.
What is titanium carbide used for?
Titanium carbide is used to make cemented carbide and as an electrode and abrasive for arc lamps.
Titanium carbide is used to prepare cermet. Titanium carbide is usually used to process steel at high cutting speed because of its wear resistance and high hardness. It is also used as a wear-resistant surface coating for metal parts, such as tool drills and watch mechanisms. Titanium carbide is also used as a thermal insulation coating for re-entry of spacecraft.
Titanium carbide is an important component of cemented carbide and is used as a deoxidizer in steelmaking industry. For example, 7075 aluminum alloy (AA7075) is almost as strong as steel, but weighs 1/3 of steel. Large alloy parts can be welded by using AA7075 rods with TiC nanoparticles without cracks caused by phase segregation.
Titanium carbide vs. Tungsten carbide
The carbide has a Mohs hardness of 8.5 to 9, a melting temperature of 2870°C and a low electrical resistance. it is often used as cutting tool materials, braiding, high hardness armor or armor piercing cores, as well as pointed beads that require high hardness sports equipment parts and atoms. It can also be used as a neutron reflector.
Titanium carbide is lighter and cheaper than tungsten carbide, but it is more brittle in cutting tools.
When titanium carbide is combined with tungsten carbide in sintered cemented carbide tool materials, the tendency of pits in the tool can be reduced.

According to OPEC's monthly report, crude oil demand growth in 2022 is forecast to be 3.1 million b / d (previously 3.36 million b / d). Global economic growth is forecast to be 3.1% in 2022 (3.5% previously forecast) and 3.1% in 2023 (3.2% previously forecast). The global oil market is expected to enter a state of oversupply this quarter.
In the first half of 2022, France net imported 2.5 TWh, exported about 16.4 TWh and imported 18.9 TWh, according to the latest figures from EnAppSys, an energy consultancy. By comparison, France's net export of electricity reached 21.5 terawatt hours in the second half of 2021.
Jean-Paul Harreman, director of Enappsys, believes that the main problem for France to change from a power exporter to a net importer is the weak supply of nuclear energy in France in the first half of the year.
In terms of nuclear power supply, French nuclear power generation reached about 152.72 terawatt hours in the first half of this year, about 28.04 terawatt hours less than in the same period in 2021, according to Ember, an energy consultancy.
According to foreign media reports, so far, only half of the 56 nuclear reactors in France are in normal operation. EDF, the main operator of French nuclear power, said it shut down its reactors because of routine maintenance, safety reviews and corrosion risks.
