Vale is the world’s biggest producer of iron ore and pellets, raw materials essential to the manufacture of steel.
Iron ore is found in nature in the form of rocks, mixed with other elements. By means of various industrial processes incorporating cutting-edge technology, iron ore is processed and then sold to steel companies.
The iron ore produced by Vale can be found in houses, cars and household appliances.
We are investing in technological innovations and developing initiatives to prevent and minimize the environmental impacts that mining causes. Our aim is to set the benchmark in the sustainable management and use of natural resources.
