Problems faced by low carbon ferroalloy industry in India

Gupta, Bhaskar (1983) Problems faced by low carbon ferroalloy industry in India. In: Proceedings of the Seminar on Problems and Prospects of Ferro-Alloy Industry in India, Oct. 24-26, 1983, NML, Jamshedpur.



Production of Low Carbon Ferro alloys by Thermit process started in India in an organised manner around 20 years back under the sponsorship of Iron & Steel control and the able technical guidance of the National Metallurgical Labo-ratory, Jamshedpur. But unfortunately, the promise, which was envisaged at the beginning, has remained largely unfulfilled till today. The passage of this industry all these years since its inception has been chequered and the industry is under severe strain now. An attempt has been made in this paper to enumerate some of the problems that are facing the low carbon ferro alloy industry. Possible solutions for some of the problems have also been suggested for the survival of this industry.
