The core product at Elkem Iceland is ferrosilicon, which is one of the elementary raw materials for the steel industry. FeSi is either used for refining of steel or as an ingredient to reach predetermined qualities.
Elkem Iceland has always produced standard FeSi, but in recent years, the plant has expanded its portfolio of speciality FeSi to meet increased market demand for such products.
