The term “ferroalloys” refers to various alloys of iron with a high proportion of other elements, such as manganese (Mn), aluminium (Al), or Silicon (Si), used in production of steel. Alloys impart distinctive qualities to steel and cast iron or serve important functions during production. The steel industry is the leading consumer of ferroalloys.
Ferroalloys are generally produced in an electric arc furnace under high temperatures, with the use of various types of regenerators. Most commonly, production takes places by carbothermic reactions, involving reduction of oxides with carbon (coke) in presence of iron.
Production of ferroalloys in Georgia began in the 1930s, based on Chiatura ores. Georgian Manganese LLC produces manganese alloys, fully complying with international standards on the elements content and chemical composition.
Product quality and fractions are governed by contract with customers. In case of market demand and advantageous offer, Georgian Manganese Ltd can produce ferroalloys of different quality and quantity
