Hot Briquette Iron (HBI)
The primary standard characteristic of HBI is a guaranteed total iron content of not less than 90%, and at least 92% metallisation level. HBI contains at least 83% Fe.
The indisputable advantages of HBI include: stable uniformity of its chemical composition; low phosphorus, sulphur, as well as other dangerous admixture content; absence of harmful elements, such as copper, nickel, non-metal substances; comes in a standardised briquette size; high specific bulk density; and the possibility to plan delivery by the amount and date required for the long-term.
HBI is an ecologically clean, non-toxic, non-explosive commodity, with a high bulk density, which considerably simplifies and reduces the cost of storage, loading and off-loading, and transfer by any means of transport.
