Ferrochromium (FeCr), and alloys in general, have multielement mineral composition. Each mineral has its own value and individual importance, and each lot of metal has its own cost of production and value in use.

While Cr(omium) is the main element in ferrochromium and its content is the major contribution of FeCr price, other mineral components of alloy such as Fe(rrum), C(arbon), Si(licon), P(hosphorus), S(ulphur) can vary considerably.

The content of these minerals and CO2 footprint is typically within the range of:
Fe: 25% to 50%
P: 0.01% to 0.05%
C: 0.01% to 9.5%
CO2: Up to 10 MT / MT FeCr
