The newly developed ferro-silicon-aluminum alloy
combines the metallurgical properties of aluminum as well as ferro-silicon.

About us

The primary goal of establishing the ICMD in 2011 was organization of the industrial production of ferro-silicon-aluminum alloy, as well as other complex alloys in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and other countries; and their distribution, participation in the development of new technologies for the production of alloys FeSi75 with low aluminium content from unconventional raw materials, production of chromium nickel cast iron for the production of stainless steel brands, production of low carbon ferromanganese from complex iron ores.

As a subsidiary of HMT Holding ICMD Holding GmbH is currently implementing a number of construction projects for the production of an innovative ferro-silicon-aluminum alloy. Since 2012, ICMD Holding GmbH holds an exclusive license for the production of this alloy, as well as a patent holder for the production technology of high-purity ferro-silicon.

ICMD Holding GmbH implements the projects for the construction of ferro-alloy plants in Kazakhstan - KCAP LLP, Kyrgyzstan - Avinien LLC, in Brazil - General Alloys Ltda. for the production of ferro-silicon aluminium.

In 2011, ICMD launched series production of ferro-silicon aluminium at the Ekibastuz Mini Smelter A and K LLP.

The project capacity of this mini smelter was 3,000 tons per year, the alloy produced was delivered to the Russian and Japanese steel mills for processing of killed and semi-killed steel brands.

Between 2011 and 2012, more than 5,000 tons of FeSiAl were produced.

At the beginning of 2013, the ferro-silicon aluminium production was developed in three SAFs of 9 MVA (1 furnace) and 24 MVA (2 furnaces) at KSP Steel (Pavlodar) under a sublicensing agreement. The total output of the three furnaces reached 24,000 tons per year.

In total, about 50,000 tons of alloy were sold to the metallurgy companies in Kazakhstan (AO ArcelorMittal Temirtau), Russia (Magnitogorsk MK, Omutninsk MK, ZAO Ferrosplav and others), Germany (Thyssenkrupp steelworks), Korea (POSCO), Japan (Kobe Steel, JFE Steel Corp.), China (Baosteel).

Karaganda Complex Alloys Plant

Karaganda, Kazakhstan:
To date preliminary construction works are completed for erection of a complex alloys plant with annual capacity of 90 thousand tons with 4x33 MVA furnaces. It is envisaged to produce not only ferro-silicon-aluminum, but also ferro-silicon and ferro-silicon-manganese.

The construction of the ferroalloy plant with capacity of 50 000 tons per year of FeSiAl alloy in the Kyrgyz Republic was launched in 2014.

Avinien LLC shareholders are: Republican State Enterprise National center on complex processing of mineral raw materials of the Republic of Kazakhstan and ICMD International Corporation of Metal and Alloy Development Holding GmbH, Germany.

Due to the electric power deficit in 2016 caused by political and economic crisis in the country the construction was suspended.

At present negotiations are being conducted with the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic to secure guaranteed volumes of the electric power and to resume the construction of the plant.

Sao Paulo:

2014 in the state Minas Gerais, a 12 MVA furnace was rented with a further buy out option, where it was envisaged to organize the production of ferro-silicon-aluminum.

However, due to the energy crisis in Brazil in 2014 and the following years and the repeated skyrocketing of electricity prices (4-8 times), a decision was made to freeze this project because this situation with electricity deficit and high prices still exists in the State Minas Gerais.

2020: ICMD Holding GmbH has decided to reorient its operations to the coal state Santa Catharina, where energy tariffs are more acceptable. A business plan has been developed for the construction of a FeSiAl smelter with a total annual capacity of 72 thousand tons in 4 furnaces.

Negotiations are underway with coal and energy companies, as well as with the city hall of Chriciuma on the provision of land for the construction of the smelter.
