Manganese and Ferroalloy
Manganese, the fourth most used metal in the world, is an element of the composition of several items used in our daily lives, such as batteries, pots, and paint. The mineral is also essential for the manufacture of steel and ferroalloys, which are combinations of iron with one or more chemical elements.
Although almost 90% of manganese production is destined for the steel industry, its applications also include the manufacture of fertilizers, animal feed, and cars.
