Mody, R H (1983) Presidential Address. In: Proceedings of the Seminar on Problems and Prospects of Ferro-Alloy Industry in India, Oct. 24-26, 1983, NML, Jamshedpur.



The ferro-alloy industry forms the backbone of the iron and steel industry of the world. Ferro-alloys are added in the manufacture of mild steel as well as alloy, tool, stainless and other special steels. The production of ferroalloys in India commenced some forty years ago when the first blast furnace was installed by M/s Tisco at Joda for the production of ferromanganese.Subsequently M/s VISL started production of ferro-silicon by setting up two 1500 KVA submerged arc furnaces. With the development of steel industry, the demand for ferro-alloys has increased and today there are more than twelve producers of ferro-alloys using electro-thermal smelting, with total installed capacity of over 500,000 tonnes for all types of ferro-alloys.
