India’s Ministry of Steel has sanctioned INR 15 crore funds each in 2018-19 & 2019-20 for Promotion of Research & Development in Iron & Steel Sector. The energy efficient and environment friendly technologies adopted by steel industry as part of technological up gradation, modernisation, expansion programme & projects include the following

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 Systems

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 generated are recycled back within the steel plants. Solid wastes such as Blast Furnace slag is granulated within the steel plant and sold to cement industry. Gaseous wastes generated from the processes are further used in downstream processes in the plant such as in the reheating furnaces and power generation. Further, Research & Development projects have also been undertaken for utilization of steel slag in road making, construction, agriculture etc.
