IMnI has three categories of members
"Ordinary" members are producers of manganese ore
"Affiliate" members are other manganese-related industries
Electrolytic Products Division Members:
In 1997, IMnI introduced a third division of membership, the
"Electrolytic Products Division", open to companies
manufacturing manganese-based electrolytic products.
Of the 21.8 million tonnes of manganese ore produced in the world
in 2003, IMnI members accounted for 95% of high grade ore. IMnI
members also accounted for 73% of the 8.9 million tonnes of manganese
alloys produced world-wide (excluding China) in 2003.
IMnI - A World-Wide Membership
IMnIs professional support staff is a small, motivated and
effective team. But much of the value and the output of the Institute
comes from the contributions made by personnel from member companies;
approximately 85 staff from these companies participate regularly
in IMnIs Committees and Working Groups.
The 27 countries in which IMnI members operate (January 2004)
are: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, China (and Hong Kong),
France, Gabon, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan,
Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Singapore, Slovakia,
South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, Ukraine, U.S.A.
