What is Ferrosilicon? Close to 90% of ferrosilicon is used in producing steel and iron. Ferrosilicon is a silicon source used to deoxidize steel and other ferrous alloys and to reduce metals from their oxides. This limits the loss of carbon from molten steel (a process known as heat blocking). Ferrosilicon is used in the production of of "green steel" and electrical steel, also known as silicon steel, which requires a significant quantity of ferrosilicon to improve the electrical properties of the steel, such as resistivity. Electrical or silicon steel is used for electromotors, transformer cores, and other electrical applications. Ferrosilicon is also used to make silicon and ferrous silicon alloys that are corrosion-resistant and high-temperature resistant. When ferrosilicon is alloyed with other metals, it can be used to manufacture semiconductors, which are in high demand in the electronics sector.

FeSi MBX: exchange traded tokenized ferrosilicon

The first exchange-traded ferrosilicon product in Europe

Currently Ferrosilicon is only traded as futures contract on the Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange in China, making it hard for European investors to access the ferrosilicon market and manufacturers to hedge Ferrosilicon costs. FeSi MBX will be accessible globally, divided into stockpiles all around the globe and be separated by token for each region. Below is a list of the currently active Ferrosilicon MBX markets. We are planning to expand markets as we grow. If you have suggestions for a new market get in touch with us. In comparison to CFDs, options, and futures, MBX E-Commodities are 100% physical asset backed at all times (meaning that the underlying physical assets are and remain available at the storage location in the name of the token holder).

turkey: The bridge between east and west

Why we choose Turkey Free-Zone as our initial storage location for underlying physical Ferrosilicon

The reasons specific to Ferrosilicon are that Turkey itself is the 7th largest steel producer in the world and it offers cheap logistics to the European Union (which as Union is in second place for steel production worldwide) as well as many other top steel producing regions. At the same time, it also offers favorable conditions for supplying ferrosilicon from the currently participating and future suppliers.

Demand for Ferrosilicon

Ferrosilicon is an integral raw material in the production of steel. 3-4 kilograms of FeSi is used to produce one tonne of regular carbon steel, whereas stainless steel requires 20-40 KG of FeSi. However, the ferrosilicon market growth can outpace that of steel due to the rising demand for green and electrical (silicon) steel.

Electrical (or Silicon) Steel

Electrical steel is an iron alloy which can have a silicon content between 0 to 6.5%. Non-grain-oriented electrical steel (NGOES) is primarily used in rotating equipment (e.g. electric motors, generators and over frequency and high-frequency converters). Grain-oriented electrical steel (GOES) is used in static equipment such as transformers.
