More about Iron
Iron is the second most abundant metal in the earth’s crust (after aluminium). The iron ores, which are mainly the oxides, are reduced to iron with carbon (coke) at high temperatures in a blast furnace. Over 98% of this is converted directly to steel without even being allowed to solidify after leaving the furnace in which it is made. A relatively small amount is used as cast iron and wrought iron.
Iron ore is a key commodity and vital product portfolio for Berium Group. Our strategic mission in the international iron ore marketplace is to lift the ore where it is produced and deliver it directly to areas where it is demanded. We balance between physical origination and industrial consumption of iron ore on global scale.
