Inaugural Address

Salve, N K P (1983) Inaugural Address. In: Proceedings of the Seminar on Problems and Prospects of Ferro-Alloy Industry in India, Oct. 24-26, 1983, NML, Jamshedpur.



It gives me immense pleasure to be present here on this day to share with you some of my views regarding problems and prospects of Ferro-Alloy Industry. Ferro-Alloy is defined as an alloy of iron that contains a sufficient amount of one or more chemical elements to be useful as an agent for introducing these elements into molten metal, usually steel. The iron and steel industry consumes perhaps 95% by weight of the ferroalloys prod-uced, however, other alloy systems, although relatively small in volume, represent substantial and growing markets with respect to value. The principal ferro-alloys are those of manganese and silicon. Manganese is used in the production of virtually all steels, primarily to neut-ralise the harmful effects of sulphur.
