Antimony can be found in nature, either in the form of oxides and sulfides, or in association with other metals. It is employed in alloys or in the form of oxides. It is mainly used as a flame retardant in textiles and plastics, or as a fining and decolouring agent in glass.
Allianz Nefteprodukt and its partners Precious Metals Refining has an annual production capacity of about 6,000 tonnes of sodium antimonate. It is produced as a dried or non-dried powder.
Sulphuric acid is produced from the sulphur contained in the raw materials we process. It is primarily used in the production of fertilisers, but also in the steel industry and various other applications.
Our yearly capacity is about 100,000 tonnes.
The slag, the remainder of our process, is used in the construction industry, e.g. as a substitute for gravel or sand in concrete, or in dyke fortification projects. Our yearly production is about 150,000 tonnes and is sold as "Betozand" (0-4mm), "Betogrind" (4-32 mm) and "Umirock" (80-500mm).
