Industrial furnances for the Steel Industry
This heat treatment concept ensures that every single wheel reproducibly passes
through the heat treatment process.
Temperature retention times are the same for each wheel. An optimum adjustment for
each single wheel can be calculated by means of test series.
A Review and Outlook for Indian Steel
Following the financial meltdown and economic recession since 2nd half of 2008,

Odisha "the ideal destination for metals industry'
Within a short span of time, Odisha came up as the place to be in and Bhubaneswar,
the capital city, suddenly turned out to be a phenomenol place where every corporate
honchos wanted to have their foothold-thanks to the land's abundant raw materials,
natural resources, long coast line, planty landscapes, eco-friendly environment
and well-connected transport accessibility which acted as the feather on the cap.
These positive notions wooed the metals industry to lay their footfalls in this
Development of mineral Based Industries in Odisha
For the last four decades, it has been my pleasure to have been intimately connected
with the development of industries in Odisha. As Odisha has got vast natural resources,
the process of industrialisation mainly centres in developing vital industries on
its mineral wealth.
Advanced Iron Ore Beneficiation Techniques for Sinter & Pellet Feed
According to Ministry of Steel, Indian crude steel capacity is projected to reach
140 million tonnes by year 2017 and 200 tonnes by 2020. For production of 140 million
tonnes of crude steel, the iron ore required would be close to 250 million tonnes.
COAL & MINING
The next decade of coal is here
from 2011-2020, coal will generate over 100,000 terawatt hours - more electric power
than gas produced in the past 50 years and more than nuclear has produced in its
Making IT innovations work for metal and mining industries
