Abstract Scope Hydrogen is a candidate to replace carbon in metal production, as it can reduce some metal ores (e.g. iron ore); MeO<sub>x</sub> + XH<sub>2(g)</sub> = Me + XH<sub>2</sub>O(g). However, many metals, like manganese (Mn), cannot easily be reduced by H<sub>2</sub>(g) since very high activation energies are required to break the metal-oxide bond. By using hydrogen in the plasma state rather than the gas-phase, the reactivity of the hydrogen species increase significantly. For example, reduction of manganese by monoatomic hydrogen is thermodynamically favourable: MnO + 2H = Mn + H<sub>2</sub>O A prerequisite for the introduction of hydrogen plasma in metal production is a good financial case. In this work we present a scheme for a possible industrial scale ferromanganese plant based on hydrogen plasma reduction. Through mass and energy balances we demonstrate that such a plant can be economically competitive with current industrial state of the art.
