Steel Metals & Minerals International October 2011 Issue

Review of Global Steel Technology and Market

VIEWPOINT

Minerals: Backbone of Economic Growth
Looking at what the nature has to offer, it gives a lot of information when it comes to things that it holds in it. Likewise, minerals form the backbone of economic growth of every nation. Among other countries, India is eminently endowed with this gift of nature and is largely self-sufficient in most of the minerals which include bauxite, barytes, chromite, dolomite, iron ore, kyanite, limestone, copper ore, manganese ore, magnesite etc.

SPECIAL FEATURE

Mineral Processing & Engineering Innovation
The journey of Hari Machines Limited (HML) began way back in the early 70’s with setting up of Rajgangpur Engineering Works in Odisha. It catered to the local steel and refractory industries, with business interests primarily in the in east. By the beginning of the year 2000, it had an average annual turnover of Rs. 10 crore. “The transformation came post 2000 when we reorganized to take the most out of the changes with the opening up of the economy,” informed Mr. RH Dalmia, Chairman Hari Machines Ltd., HML diversified its product portfolio, manufactured machinery and provided services for cement, mining and metallurgical industries that began to grow in the eastern region.

INDIAN STEEL SCENARIO

Indian Steel's Magnificent Seven
It was due to the great vision and enterprise of Jamshetji Nusserwanji that the Tata Iron and Steel Company (TISCO) was formed in 1907 and the first ingot of the TISCO plant, at Sakchi (later named as Jamshedpur) in the then Bihar, was rolled on 16th February, 1912.

FOCUS

  • Hari Machines joins hands with RAFAKO S.A., Poland for CFBC technology in India
    Hari Machines Ltd. is now facilitated to offer CFBC Boiler technology from 60 tph to 450 tph with 164 bar pressure and 560 Deg C under Design engineering & Technology from RAFAKO S.A., Poland (largest boiler manufacturing company in Europe) suitable for combustion of washery rejects, dolochar, F-grade coal with high ash contents and biomass.
  • Managing change for market leadership in Indian Steel Sector through E-Commerce
    A great change took place in 1947 when India became free from English Rule. Government of India put a new thrust for industrialization of the country. Policies of industrialization were implemented with sincere belief in efficacy of socialist philosophy and political democracy. Heavy investment by Government in Steel Industry laid the foundation of strong edifice. This was the vision for building an economically independent new India. And we never looked back since then.

IRON ORE

  • Process for manufacture of ferrovanadium from vanadium bearing magnetite ore of Odisha
    Ferro-Vanadium is a strategic material used in production of high tensile structural steel, alloy, tool and special steels. Ferro-Vanadium is manufactured from different raw-materials. A major portion of the production is met from vanadium bearing titaniferrous magnetite iron ore. Presently, the ferro-vanadium requirement of the country is being met by imports.

MINERAL PROCESSING

The Evolution of Ferro-Niobium production at CBMM

The Companhia Brasileira de Metalurgia e Mineração (CBMM) has been mining and producing ferro-niobium (FeNb) and niobium products for over forty-five years in Araxá, Brazil. It continues to be the world’s premiere FeNb producer and supplier. A key feature of the company has been its strategy of development and innovation, enabling CBMM to compete not only in FeNb markets but also to enter new areas such as the electronics and chemical sectors.

Kalinganagar Industrial Development Opportunity in Odisha

The state of Odisha is endowed with vast mineral deposits like Coal, Iron Ore, Manganese Ore, Bauxite, Chromite, etc. According to All India Mineral Resources Estimates, the minerals deposits of Odisha in respect of Chromite, Nickel Cobalt, Bauxite, Iron Ore were about 98.4% 95.1%, 77.5%, 52.7% and 33.4% respectively, of the total deposits in India. Other important mineral resources of the State are Limestone, China Clay, Quartzite, Precious and Semi-Precious Stones, Copper, Vanadium etc.

COAL FEATURE

  • Tri-Flo®:-The New Generation Multistage Heavy Media Separation Technology for High Ash Indian Coals
    Coal remains a vital source of energy worldwide and is essential for the power & steel industry. High quality coal reserves are becoming scarce worldwide. Modern highly mechanized coal mining technologies and their economical optimization reduce the clean coal yield and make it more difficult to control the product quality. When it becomes necessary to improve the quality of run-of-mine coal with a washing process, the selection of the suitable technology is often paramount in achieving operational profitability.
  • NMDC unveiling in Coal sector
    NMDC, (a Navratna PSU of the Govt. of India), is the country's biggest iron ore miner and h a s s u c c e s s f u l l y completed 52 years of an enriching journey with significant achievements. To enable its diversification into other activities, NMDC's Memorandum and Articles of Association were amended to include Coal mining, Steel production and Power generation. Subsequently, NMDC has taken the first step towards realization its of vision by its foray into Coal mining & Steelmaking beside its core business of iron ore mining.
