Manganese and ferroalloys
Who would say that items as different as batteries and paint share a common feature? Manganese, the fourth most widely used metal in the world, is present in the composition of these, and many other objects of your everyday life. We are a producer of manganese, an essential steelmaking input, and also of ferroalloys – combinations of iron and one or more chemical elements, such as manganese itself. Nearly 90% of manganese output is used in the steel industry, but its applications also include the manufacture of fertilizers, animal food and cars.
