History of BOO

With a surface of 174.000 m2, the factory was originally designed to manufacture Calcium Carbide and after several modifications and extensions, it currently produces ferroalloys, specifically Ferromanganese, Silicomanganese and Refined Ferromanganese.
The plant is fully committed to achieve the highest competitive level in all areas of its business, by ensuring that all the environmental and energy resources are used efficiently, by protecting the health and safety of its employees and preventing all potential risks in the workplace and by respecting and improving the environment. All activities that contribute to reduce the environmental effects of all its processes are given the highest priority and are part of a continuous and ongoing process of improvement.
