Direct Reduction Plant


Direct Reduction Plant

Production Capacity: 1.95  million metric tons per year

Products: Cold DRI (Direct Reduced Iron)

                Hot DRI (Direct Reduced Iron)

Commissioned and Started: 2013-2014

Production Process Summary:

Steel production starts in the direct reduction plant where Iron Ore is reduced from Iron Oxides to direct reduced Iron (DRI).

Reduction process occur inside the reactor starting by reforming natural gas to carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen (H2) that in turn react with iron ore and transform it to DRI (direct reduced iron). Inside the reactor, carburization reaction takes place also using natural gas in order to increase carbon content in the final product as required.

Direct reduced iron produced in the reactor is either stored via belts after cooling down or directly fed to meltshop in hot condition to save energy and increase productivity.
