AlloyStream™ is a patented process technology in which fine ore is converted directly to metal or ferroalloy, using cheaper reductants and less electric power than conventional technology, and with lower environmental impact. During 2005, the process was demonstrated in the production of ferromanganese, using a purpose-built, large-scale furnace at Exxaro’s pilot plant facility in Pretoria. Ferronickel was also successfully produced more recently in 2009.
