THINK AHEAD.

THINK BIG.

We want to offer the absolute best and most efficient products there are. That is why we put a lot of metallurgical effort in sourcing, adjusting and even producing the products. As we see it quality means predictability, efficient production and low environmental impact in comparison.

How we work together

We have collaborated with a bunch of different companies and industries over the years. Here are a few.

A reduction that reduces costs and environmental impacts

Briquette based on four raw materials

Briquette based on four raw materials

Some residues are more difficult to find benefits for, than others. But in order to reduce the need for virgin raw materials, Eramet teamed up with us to find a greener solution for their ferroalloy production.
