5th Manganese School on Mn Ferroalloy Production on July 4, 2024

The 5th Manganese School is scheduled on July 4th, 2024 as an online event.  This year’s theme will be “Decarbonization of the Manganese Ferroalloy Industry”.

The energy-intensive industry of manganese (Mn) ferroalloy production is one of the largest producers of direct carbon emissions. The demand for ferromanganese alloy, an additive of steel, follows the demand for steel and continues to increase. This means Mn ore and the production of Mn ferroalloys form an integral part in a future energy sector based on renewable energy technologies. Major structural features of wind turbines, solar panels, and energy storage devices are all made of steel components.

The current industrial practices and state-of-the-art in Mn ferroalloy production are heavily dependent on the use of fossil-based carbon. The 5th SAIMM school on Mn ferroalloy production thus aims to bring together industry and research in order to support smelters and foster collaborations between researchers towards adopting the transition of decarbonizing the ferroalloy industry.
The conversation around the topic will shed light on some of the fundamentals and industrial integration of the various decarbonization strategies.
