19 Jan, 2022, 5:16 am

Patrika reported that the LPG-induced heating of coke ovens was started at NMDC’s Integrated Steel Plant Nagarnar Steel Plant on 17 January 2022. It will be followed by the commissioning of the first unit of the Coke Oven Plant after 75 days. The chimney needs to be sufficiently heated before battery heating, which is why the process of heating the battery chimney was started last month. It is only after 90 days of heating of the chimney and the battery that the coke oven begins to form. The combined annual capacity of the coke oven battery is 1.68 million tonnes per year, while steel plants annual coking coal requirement is about 2.2 million tonnes

NMDC management is claiming that the plant will start functioning in March but the current situation says that it is not possible to do so at the moment. The peak of the third wave is yet to come, so even then the work will be affected. Foreign experts are yet to come for the testing of many packages and their arrival is possible only after the third wave is over.

The plant site is around 16 km from Jagdalpur. Ministry of steel has engaged MECON under a contract dated 23 February 2011 for Engineering, Design and Consultancy services for upcoming Steel Plant Nagarnar. MECON is providing Procurement Services, Basic Engineering Services, Detailed Engineering Services, Designer’s Supervision Services, Inspection Services, Assistance in Commissioning Services and other General Services.

19 Jan, 2022, 5:18 am

The Japan Iron and Steel Federation believes that it is inappropriate and regrettable that the European Commission has rejected our statements and concluded to continue the anti-dumping measures on grain-oriented flat-rolled steel products from Japan and the Japanese steel industry will carefully study this decision and determine a proper course of action.

On the other hand European Steel Association EUROFER has welcomed the extension saying that will help EU GOES producers keep contributing to Europe’s energy efficiency and climate targets of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. EUROFER Director General Mr Axel Eggert said “The EU energy security and climate objectives can only be met by maintaining a viable European GOES industry. GOES is a strategic, high-end product, and the European Union cannot be dependent for its supply on foreign mills located in Asia, Russia or the United States.”

GOES is a highly specialized steel product manufactured by only around 20 mills in the entire world, out of which four are located in the European Union. GOES is a vital component in the production of transformer cores

On 17 January 2022, the European Commission announced that as a result of the expiry review investigation, to continue the anti-dumping measures in the form of Minimum Import Prices on grain-oriented flat-rolled products of silicon-electrical steel imported from Japan, China, Russia, South Korea and the United States for five years.

Indian Steel Association Lays 8Point Agenda as Budget Expectations

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
19 Jan, 2022, 5:24 am

Indian Steel Association lays down a focused 8-point agenda as Budget 2022-23 expectations to help create a Level Playing Field to Indian steel makers. Indian Steel Association President Mr Dilip Oommen said “As a vital contributor to the economy, Steel Industry looks forward to the Union Budget 2022-23 for more fund allocation and the front loading for Government Infrastructure projects that will augment the metal’s demand, apart from zero import duty on input raw materials for a level playing field. These measures are imperative to promote domestic production that will give a much-needed push for self-reliance, besides providing an edge against foreign steel manufacturers. There is also an immediate requirement of a policy on green economy and green financing for future steel capacity building while ensuring a level playing field.”

Indian Steel Association Secretary General Mr Alok Sahay added "ISA's submission to the government ahead of the Union Budget has covered a wide spectrum of concerns of the Indian steel players. Our memorandum highlights the issues that need to be resolved for the steel sector to grow from the current installed capacity of 144 million tonnes to 300 million tonnes, as laid down by the National Steel Policy unveiled in 2017. Reduction and rationalization of certain duties along with certain policy measures will help create a Level Playing field in the Global arena specially in a context where 2/3rd of imports from Countries having FTA with India arrive at zero basic customs duty, who do not incur similar costs. We humbly request the finance ministry to consider our memorandum and hope that the government intervenes with the required measures."

1) Reduction of Basic Customs duty on Coking coal, SS Scrap, Nickel to nil since the availability of these input raw materials is very low

2) Bringing Petrol, Oil, Lubricants and natural gas under the purview of GST, since no input credit is available on these inputs

3) Waiver of Coal Cess & Refund of Input tax credit on GST compensation cess of INR 400 per tonne of coal consumed for domestic steel sales

4) Steel Import Monitoring System needs to be integrated with real-time import database & Indian Customs Electronic Gateway ICEGATE to bring in discipline and make the SIMS more meaning full

5) Removal of Lesser Duty Rule as it is not binding upon WTO Members and its application is optional. Due to the LDR being applicable in India, majority of tariff remedial measures imposed remain ineffective and become redundant quickly.

6) Inclusion of Iron and Steel in RoDTEP scheme to bring Indian steel industry at par with global competitors and boost export competitiveness of the downstream industries using steel as a major input raw material

7) The Ministry of Finance needs to review restoration of Antidumping Duties and Countervailing Duties suspended by the Government

8) Notifying Antidumping duties on Hot Rolled Steel, Cold Rolled Steel, Color Coated Steel and Wire Rods recommended by DGTR after sunset review investigation.

British Steel Joins By-Products Research Project FeRICH

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
20 Jan, 2022, 5:08 am

British Steel is taking part in a GBP 1.4 million research project to increase the utilization of some of waste material for the sustainable manufacture of cement. Researchers from The University of Sheffield Department of Materials Science and Engineering are developing processes and technologies for incorporating unprecedented amounts of iron-rich by-products from the steel industry and utilizing them in cement processing. The cement industry worldwide is currently responsible for around 8% of global CO2 emissions. Cement processing uses a significant amount of calcium in the form of limestone. When these chalky materials are processed, almost half of the mass is released as CO2. If this bulk material could be substituted for an alternative, this could significantly reduce cement’s environmental impact.

The research project will also look at the possible beneficial aspects of other elements, like zinc, in cement manufacture.

Starting in June 2022, the project will be named ‘FeRICH: developing iron-rich cement for the valorisation and upcycling of steel slags’. It will assess ways to upcycle the by-products of the steel industry leading to iron-rich resources, and the formulation of final cement and concrete products which can be adopted by the construction industry.

Other partners of the FeRICH project are Heidelberg Cement Group Hanson, Flemish Institute of Technology VITO and Institute of Building Materials Research RWTH Aachen University. It has been supported with a grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

EVRAZ Develops 2 Type of Rails for Africa at ZSMK Plant

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
20 Jan, 2022, 5:16 am

Russian steel maker EVRAZ’s ZSMK plant had developed new rails for African countries Two types of rails, SAR48 and SAR57, with parameters according to European standard EN13674-1:2011+A1:2017, were mastered at the rail and beam shop of EVRAZ ZSMK. The products are intended for public railways. EVRAZ plans to deliver new rails in lengths from 18 to 60 meters for African countries in 2022.

The development of the new rails was carried out in accordance with the drawings of Transnet, the largest railway operator in South Africa. Employees of the calibration bureau of the EVRAZ ZSMK rail and beam shop developed templates and a new calibration of rail profiles. It involves an increased number of universal calibers and the use of a free-standing universal finishing stand. The new rolling method has improved the geometry and straightness along the entire length of the rails. When developing the technology, metallurgists tested three hardening modes, developed a cooling technology and a rail straightening mode.

The new rails are made of R350LHT steel with high chromium content. This affects the quality of metal heat treatment, which in turn increases the hardness of the finished product. The technology developed by EVRAZ metallurgists made it possible to obtain low values of residual stresses in the rail sole, and the obtained values of mechanical properties and hardness on the tread surface and in cross section significantly exceeds the requirements of the European standard. These characteristics directly affect the service life of the rails.

ArcelorMittal Poland Investing in Cold Rolling Mill in Kraków

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
20 Jan, 2022, 5:21 am

ArcelorMittal Poland will invest over PLN 100 million in its cold rolling mill in Kraków in Poland. As part of the program, the company implements three projects: replacement of the rolling mill motors, modernization of the sheet etching line and the purchase of a new grinding machine. The end of the program is scheduled for the end of this year. The first project has already been completed, and consisted in replacing three DC motors in one of the rolling stands of the rolling mill with one AC motor.

Modernization of the sheet etching line is planned for the fourth quarter of this year. Hot-rolled coils must be cleaned of the so-called scales, i.e. mixtures of iron oxides formed during hot rolling. Etching, i.e. cleaning sheet metal from surface defects in hydrochloric acid solution, takes place on a 250-meter-long etching line. Thanks to automation, the processes performed before the material enters the line will be shortened. The number of hot-rolled steel coils prepared simultaneously for pickling will increase, and the packaging tape will be removed by a robot. Full automation of the process is also waiting for the exit section of the line: a new coiler, an automatic coil tying machine and new coil transport trolleys will be installed.

In turn, a new, fully automatic grinder will be installed in the roll grinding plant, working with high precision - the deviations in the surface of the polished rollers will not exceed 0.002 mm per meter.
