Zaporizhzhia Ferroalloy Plant
Zaporizhzhia Ferroalloy Plant (ZFP) is one of the three Ukrainian producers of ferroalloys. ZFP produces manganese and silicon alloys (ferrosilicomanganese, ferrosilicon, ferromanganese), used in the steel sector for deoxidation and alloying of steel, alloys and pig iron. It purchases raw materials from Ukrainian companies, including Pokrov GOK, Marganets GOK, Azovstal, Avdiyivka Coke Plant, Novotroitsk Mine Group and others. ZFP exports its products directly and through intermediaries. It produces part of products on a tolling basis.
All electric arc furnaces are equipped with dust collection units. ZFP uses part of ferroalloy gas instead of natural, and has closed loops of technical water supply.
ZFP is the only producer of manganese metal in Ukraine.

ZFP plans to invest UAH 164 million. About 85% of CAPEX is aimed on maintenance works.
According to ZFP’s top officers, the average monthly volume of electricity consumed by the company was 135 million kWh. The share of electricity costs in the structure of production costs was around 50%.
ZFP melting shops use the layered casting of fire-liquid slags technology. This technology allows generating raw material instead of waste — oxide aluminosilicate (OAS), subsequently used as remelting impurities and as raw materials for the production of construction materials.
ZFP actively uses river transport to deliver its products. In 2016, the share of river shipments in the total sales volume was 16%. ZFP also uses railway and automobile shipments.
