Ordinary Members are companies that mine Manganese ore and/or produce Manganese ferro-alloys, as well as companies that produce Mn-based chemical compounds. ... companies producing electrolytic manganese metal and electrolytic manganese dioxide, industry service providers, universities and research organizations.
More than 25 million tons of manganese are mined every year. Most manganese mining occurs in open pits. Although there are processes in place to mine manganese nodules in the ocean floor, they cannot complete with land-based mining production. Once the ore is mined, it’s transferred to a processing plant for electrolytic processing or smelting.
Using minor metals from Belmont Metals in Brooklyn, NY can greatly improve your manufacturing process. These metals are often added to master alloys to improve certain desirable properties. For example, electrolytic manganese is often added to steel, aluminum and copper master alloys in order to increase the metal’s ferromagnetic properties.
