Direct Reduction Plant

The backbone of the integrated steel complex will be the world’s largest existing direct reduction plant with an annual production output of 1.95 million tons/year. The process technology is being provided by Danieli in partnership with Tenova HYL. This natural gas-based direct reduction plant technology is supplied under the worldwide trademark of ENERGIRON.

This module will convert iron ore into metallic iron through the use of reducing gases in a solid-gas moving bed shaft furnace. The use of such high-purity raw material gives Solb Misr greater control over the quality of steel.
