Rao, T R Ramachandra (2006) Direct Reduced Iron Industry in India - Problems and Prospects. In: Proceedings of the International Seminar on Mineral Processing Technology and Indo-Korean Workshop on Resource Recycling (MPT-2006), March 8-10, 2006, NML, Chennai.



India is the largest producer of Direct Reduced Iron in the world with annual capacity of nearly 10 Mt comprising coal and gas based DRI plants. India has the largest coal based DRI capacity. The industry is faced with problems relating to raw materials availability and their quality. An important consideration for overcoming this problem will be to install pelletising plants. Despite all odds, the outlook appears to be bright for the DRI industry as the steel production in India is expected to reach about 50 Mt by the year 2010. The paper deals with coal based DRI industry.
