Laporte – A History of the Australind Titanium Dioxide Project


Hardback - Author: O'Shaughnessy P Publisher: Hesperian Press

Peter O’Shaughnessy, international award winning environmental manager and chemist and long term Bunbury resident, presents an insider’s view of the high’s and low’s of the Laporte titanium dioxide project which utilized the black sands (ilmenite) being mined on local beaches, to make the incredibly white titanium dioxide pigment used in paints, paper, plastics, cosmetics and even toothpaste.

Sir Charles Court has written the foreword to this entertaining account, laced with anecdotes and reminiscences which capture the spirit and integrity of those who worked to make Laporte the excellent company it was.
