Products

The core product of Finnfjord is ferrosilicon, a high quality product used as an important raw material in the steel industry. The purity may be specified according to the customer's demand.
Silica was originally considered a pollution issue. However, with today's cleaning technology, it has become a resource and an important product for Finnfjord.
Finnfjord has produced electric power using a steam turbine since 2012. The steam is generated by extracting thermal energy in the off-gases from the metal production.
