Indian Steel Minister Mr Ram Chandra Prasad Singh in a written reply in the Lok Sabha informed that Indian steel industry is adopting energy efficient and environment friendly technologies as part of technological up gradation & modernisation & expansion of programme & projects.

Some of these are:-

Coke Dry Quenching - Power generation from the waste heat from CDQ

Sinter Plant Heat Recovery - Power generation from Sinter Cooler Waste Heat

Bell Less Top Equipment in Blast Furnace

Top Pressure Recovery Turbine in Blast Furnace

Pulverized Coal Injection system in Blast Furnace

Hot stove waste heat recovery in Blast Furnace

Dry type Gas Cleaning Plant in Blast Furnace

Cast House & Stock House Dedusting system

Converter Gas Recovery in BOF

Energy Monitoring & Management System

Secondary Fume Extraction System in Steel Melting Shop

Regenerative Burners in Re-heating Furnaces of Rolling Mills

Hot charging process of continuously cast products at higher temperature directly to Rolling Mills

Direct Rolling Process eliminating the need for Re-heating furnaces

Energy efficient technology for Hot Strip Mill: Flexible Thin Slab casting & Rolling

Near Net Shape casting: Bloom cum Beam Blank caster, Bloom cum Round caster etc

Adoption of Variable Voltage Variable Frequency Drives for high capacity electric motors

The wastes being generated are effectively recycled back within the steel plants. Some wastes such as Blast Furnace slag is granulated within the steel plant and sold to cement industry. Research & Development projects have also been undertaken for effective utilization of steel slag in road making, construction, agriculture etc.

INR 5 crore funds are sanctioned by the government for the scheme “Promotion of Research & Development in Iron & Steel Sector” for the years 2020-21 and 2021-22
