Iron (Fe) used to produce coagulants and flocculants, can come from various sources such as:

  • pickling liquor
  • mill scale or scrap from the steel industry
  • copperas or ferrous sulphate, from the titanium dioxide production

LKAB Minerals’ MagnaChem is a high grade, natural alternative iron source to these recycled and less pure products.
