About Us



The International Iron Metallics Association (IIMA) was established by the Hot Briquetted Iron Association (HBIA) and the International Pig Iron Association (IPIA) to provide a unified voice for the ore-based metallics industry.

The International Iron Metallics Association (IIMA) acknowledges the need for a measured transition to a low emissions global economy and recognizes that comprehensive and sustained actions are required to achieve this goal. Therefore, as a member of the World Steel Association (WSA) and the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM), IIMA will encourage its members to support the aims and goals of the environmental and climate change initiatives of these organizations.

IIMA, through the activities of its Environment Sub-Committee, will strive to summarize the international, national, and industry trends, policies, and procedures in order to inform and educate its membership at large.
