Born from the double level theory of Eng. Mario Appolonia, a specialist in the production of Ferrochrome, process KAT starts in 1990 with an experimental application, whose factual evidence motivates the inventor to deepen the study. The identifi cation of the appropriate kind of refractory, the optimal sizing of the crucible and the adjustment of the distance between electrodes wheelbase as a function of the applied power, made process KAT Technology reach the requirements for eff ective industrialization.
Since 1992, this process innovation becomes established on national territory.
In 2000, process KAT lands in Eastern Europe by Darfo Albania Sh.pk.
In 2009, based on this success, Engineer Appolonia registers this process, getting the lnternational Patent.
In 2011, this patent obtains the reference of Prof. Giuseppe Silva, Professor of Metallurgy at the Polytechnic of Milan, which certifi es its validity and practical value.
From the propensity of Eng. Appolonia to reach further targets, it came out the real need to create an operative structure, able to consolidate the heritage of skills and know-how and able to address the modern challenges facing the new markets.
