Hot Briquetted Iron (HBI) from voestalpine Texas LLC - premium quality and superior service you can rely on

HBI (Hot Briquetted Iron) can be used as a scrap supplement in Electric Arc Furnaces allowing the production of most demanding steel grades. HBI is also used in Blast Furnaces to boost productivity and to reduce the coke consumption or in Blast Oxygen Furnaces as a low-residual substitute for scrap.

Compared to scrap, HBI offers a predictable product quality. It can either be charged by bucket or by continuous feeding systems. Furthermore, HBI can easily be shipped without any specific preconditions and can be stored in open atmosphere.

HBI from voestalpine distinguishes by low residual levels (Cu, Cr, Ni, Mo, Sn) as well as favorably low phosphorous and sulphur levels. Additional carbon in the HBI and a low fines content contributes to an improved yield in your EAF operation. 

With our technical expertise and our quality driven approach we are a reliable partner to customers in the steel industry.
