Iron and steel industry
Modern architecture would be inconceivable without steel. Cars need lightweight steel bodies with high mechanical strength. As a competent partner to the steel industry, we promote the further development of steel products meeting ever higher quality requirements.
Lime is the purifying element in iron and steel production, where it is needed for slag formation and desulphurisation. Limestone from Fels is used to convert iron ore into pig iron in blast furnaces. The lime removes unwanted constituents from the pig iron and crude steel. Quicklime is needed for further processing in the steelworks, where such harmful constituents as phosphorus and sulphur are bound by the lime. Fels also supplies customised special mixtures for particularly high-quality steel grades with extremely low sulphur content. Lime products containing magnesium help to regenerate the refractory materials in the furnaces.
