Ferromanganese (FeMn), a ferroalloy produced by smelting manganese ore in the presence of coke. FeMn can be produced in either a blast furnace or a submerged arc furnace. Ferromanganese is typically produced as High Carbon (78% Mn, 7.5% C), Medium Carbon (80% Mn, 1.5% C) and Low Carbon (80% Mn, 0.5% C).  Ferromanganese is used as a strengthener in steel, or in combination with ferrosilicon as a deoxidizer.
