Pig iron Wikipedia

Pig iron is an intermediate product of the iron industry, also known as crude iron, which is obtained by smelting iron ore in a blast furnace.Pig iron has a very high carbon content, typically 3.84.7%, along with silica and other constituents of dross, which makes it very brittle and not useful directly as a material except for limited applications.. The traditional shape of the molds used

Nickel pig iron Wikipedia

Nickel pig iron (NPI) is a low grade ferronickel invented in China as a cheaper alternative to pure nickel for the production of stainless steel. The production process of nickel pig iron utilizes laterite nickel ores instead of pure nickel sold on the world market. The alternative was developed as a response to high price of pure nickel.
