Niobrás is the second largest niobium producer in the world. The Company is responsible for the extraction of niobium from the mine located in Catalão (GO). Subsequently, the niobium is sent to the processing plant in Ouvidor (GO), where ferroniobium alloys are produced - essential for the industrial sector, as it is an important component that gives high resistance to metallic alloys, forming part of the structure of ships, airplanes and bridges and providing more resistance to both high and low temperatures, among other applications.
Niobrás ferroniobium is marketed in North America, Europe and Asia’s steel industries.
Niobium is an important raw material that guarantees high resistance to metallic alloys, resisting mainly corrosion and extreme temperatures.
