Guilin Comilog Ferroalloy Co., Ltd., incorporated on Sept. 30, 2002, is a wholly owned subsidiary and important production base of Eramet Group in China, and it is mainly engaged in production of various manganese alloys like high-carbon, middle-carbon and low-carbon ferromanganese and manganese silicon, etc. It is one of the major carbon ferromanganese manufacturers in China.
The factory covers an area of 772.1Mu. The total investment in Phase I is RMB870million. The Project commenced in June 2009, and was established and put into product in July 2012. Phase I works covered four submerged arc furnaces of 25500kVA, two refining electric furnaces of 6300kVA, and such public auxiliary facilities for raw materials processing, power supply and distribution, water supply and sewerage, dedicated railway lines, dedicated line of 220kv, environmental protection and waste heat recovery, etc. The environmental protection investment was RMB106.8million, accounting for 12.28% of the total investment. There were 23 sets of dust removal plants, covering the entire process flows including raw materials treatment, blending and feeding, ferroalloy smelting, sintering, lime rotating furnace, processing of finished products, etc. The atmospheric emission dust concentration was designed as per ≤20mg/m3, greatly higher than the national standards. The dust removal ashes were recovered and sintered for repeated use. There were 9 sets of water circulating systems, realizing circulating use of industrial water, thus ensuring zero discharge of industrial and domestic water, with the water repeated use rate up to 98%. The waste heat from the coal gas and high-temperature stack gas was recovered for drying of ores, sintering of raw materials and power generation.
At the end of 2015, the Company had 326 employees. In consideration of influences resulting from the slump of the downstream steel industry and oversupply in the ferroalloy market, the Company took the initiative to adjust the product structure and output beginning in Oct. 2013. Now, the products mainly cover the middle and low carbon ferromanganese and high silicon-manganese with high added value. The annual output was controlled at about 40,000T, but the actual annual output in the future may be increased up to 160,000T at any time according to the market situations. Currently, Eramet Comilog (Shanghai) Trading Ltd. sells all products of the factory to our clients, including some large-scale steel enterprises like CITIC Pacific Special Steel Group, MA Steel, HBIS, WISCO, etc.
