A PROJECT AT THE FOREFRONT OF NEXT GENERATION IRON-MAKING
Welcome to the website of la Société Internationale Métallique (Canada) Ltée. We are proud to share the details about our project to build a Hot Briquetted Iron (HBI) manufacturing facility in the Bécancour Waterfront Industrial Park, in Bécancour, Quebec.
HBI is the result of a second transformation of iron ore and is designed to meet the growing global demand from steelmakers for high quality, cleaner raw material.
Once operational, our facilities will be leading-edge in terms of environmental compliance, as our process emits less CO2 than other existing transformation processes, and in terms of product quality, as the HBI produced will contain minimal amounts of undesirable materials. In addition, from a logistical perspective, the transport of HBI is also safer than that of other Direct Reduced Iron.
Our goal is to become a leader in this new era of iron-making, while being an economic development partner for Bécancour and the province of Quebec. We also seek to minimize the project’s environmental footprint, while operating in a transparent and inclusive manner.
