Jana, R K and Randhawa, N S and Pal, J and Minj, R K and Godiwalla, K M (2005) Recovery of manganese as ferro-silico-manganese alloy from leached sea nodule residue. In: National Seminar on Polymetallic Nodule, 29-30th September 2005, Bhubaneswar.
The leached residue contains a considerable amount of manganese along with iron and silicon. Attempts have been made to recover manganese as ferro-silico-manganese through smelting with coke as reductant. To improve the Mn/Fe ratio in the alloy produced, three blending materials viz. Fe-Mn slag, Mn ore and electrolytic manganese metal were used. Two stages smelting of washed residue was also tried to produce directly standard grade Fe-Si-Mn alloy.
