The company « Hütte Phoenix, Aktiengesellschaft für Bergbau und Hüttenbetrieb » of Laar in the Ruhrgebiet had applied for a patent in Germany on 16 August 1877 under the title of 

Verfahren zur Darstellung des Ferromangans im Hochofen

On 10 October 1877 the company applied for a corresponding patent in Luxembourg.

The German patent application, however, was rejected in September 1878 and the Luxembourg authorities followed suit by not granting a Luxembourg patent either.
