Mr Jindal Shuns Russia & Calls for Developing Jharia Coking Coal

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
12 May, 2022, 5:58 am

Financial Times reported that JSW Group’s Chairman & Managing Director Mr Sajjan Jindal in an interview told that he is lobbying Indian Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi’s government to develop more coking coal deposits, which were nationalized until 2020. He said “We have to coking coal from Australia and Canada and we are sitting on such a large deposit so why don’t we have mission coking coal started? And Mr Modi, who is close to every business house in India which is growth oriented, which is nationalistic, which is willing to take big bets in this country, build big industries, immediately accepted. Now with these kinds of prices, there is a big opportunity and big incentive for the private sector to go out there and mine that coal and start using it.”

Mr Jindal outlined plans to start mining in the Jharia coalfields in the eastern state of Jharkhand. He said “Jharia is estimated to contain 19.4 billion tonnes of coking coal, although the site has been controversial because of poverty and pollution in the communities that live and work there. Jharia is a densely populated area, and the government is also finding it very difficult to do resettlement of those people and open up those mines. The main operational challenge would be rehabilitation and resettlement of approximately 1 million residents.”

He added that “JSW Steel had met Russian coal traders but was not offered a serious discount. It’s not very attractive to buy from Russia, and then also that would upset our customers in the US and in Europe.”

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
12 May, 2022, 6:00 am

Brazilian mining giant Vale & Siderúrgica Norte Brasil has signed an agreement to create a new steel unit Marabá at in Pará state of Brazil for production of steel billets from pig iron. Under the agreement, Vale will issue guarantees to help Sinobras obtain financing for the plant and the supply of pig iron for the project will be made by Vale’s subsidiary Tecnored and Sinobras will be responsible for the engineering studies, which should be completed by the end of 2023, as well as for the construction and operation of the plant. The detailed work schedule will be presented from the engineering studies phase. The companies did not reveal how much they will invest in the new venture.

Tecnored is a 100% Vale subsidiary focused on developing a low carbon pig iron process through the use of energy sources, such as biomass, syn-gas and hydrogen, that emit less CO2 than the coal and coke the tradition iron-making processes use. Using biomass, the path to economic carbon neutrality may be achieved in the medium term.

Since last year, Para state legislators have been conducting an investigation, through a special commission, on the costs and benefits of mining for Pará. Lawmakers have complained that Vale invests little in the state in terms of production units and much more in its mineral extraction operations. Vale has been unveiling a series of initiatives and projects in Para as part of efforts to reduce pressure from local politicians against the company. Vale’s CEO Mr Eduardo Bartolomeo said “This initiative is part of a set of investments and commitments that Vale has made with the people of Para. Altogether, we’re investing BRL 12.2 billion (USD 2.4 billion) in projects in Para, generating around 14,000 jobs at the peak of the works.”

The expansion of Sinobras activities was also one of the announcements made during the event. With the project called Sinobras phase 2, the company will more than double the production capacity of its steel plant, with an investment that includes the installation of Lamination 2, which will enable the production of 500,000 tonne per year of rolled steel in coil; and a new 230kV substation and transmission line, which will have the mission of supplying the company's new electrical load needs and providing the use of energy from the Belo Monte Hydroelectric Power Plant, of which the company is a partner as a self-producer. With this, the company will have the capacity to produce 850,000 tonne per year and will generate a peak of 600 new jobs during the implementation phase and 200 in the operational phase, in addition to producing new products such as wire rod and rebars.

Dillinger Improves DILLINAL Plates Quality to boost Wagon Capacity

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
12 May, 2022, 5:45 am

German producer of high end plates Dillinger announced that it has further developed DILLINAL as a special solution for transportable tanks. Using this weld able, fine-grained structural steel, notable for an even more remarkable combination of mechanical strength and toughness, Dillinger exhaustively exploit all potentials for minimizing the tare, boosting transportation payloads and thus improves the CO2 balance for the product transported. In addition, Dillinger significantly improves the welding processing for the fabrication shop.

To achieve the normalized fine-grained DILLINAL structural steel, the conventional P460NH described in EN 10028, Part 3, was further developed and improved. DILLINAL obtains its typical properties thanks to an extremely tightly defined composition window and exact temperature control during rolling and heat treatment. The result is a high-strength normalized fine-grained structural steel with an excellent combination of mechanical strength and toughness. In both its chemical composition, mechanical characteristics and welding requirements, DILLINAL in all cases conforms to the EN 10028. The predicted and observed tensile and yield strength data are in all cases above the minimum levels required in EN 10028, Part 3, even at elevated temperatures.

DILLINAL exhibits virtually no loss in tensile and yield strength data in the significant material reaction to stress-relieving heat treatment. DILLINAL also excellently fulfills the standard's requirement for HP factor and actually has the potential to achieve slightly higher HP values.

Tosyali Orders Slab Caster from Primetals for Algerian Plant

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
12 May, 2022, 5:49 am

Turkish-steel maker Tosyali Holding has recently ordered a new slab caster from Primetals Technologies. Tosyali is aiming to expand in the Algerian market by implementing the slab caster together with a new hot-strip mill at its site in Bethioua, located in the north-western part of Algeria. The commissioning of the slab caster is scheduled for summer 2024.

The 2-strand slab caster has a radius of ten meters and a metallurgical length of 25 meters. With a capacity of 3.4 million tons of qualified slab per year, it will produce slabs ranging in thickness from 200 to 250 millimeters and in width from 900 to 1,800 millimeters. Casting speeds will be up to 1.6 meters per minute. The mold level is controlled by LevCon, an automatic mold-level control system with auto start casting functions and auto-adaptive dynamic bulging compensation. Another important feature is Flow Master combined electromagnetic stirring and breaking in the mold, resulting in high internal strand quality at high casting speeds.

Sophisticated automation systems from Primetals Technologies make sure the casting machine is optimized for both current and future needs. The Level 2 automation package ensures high and consistent quality throughout the process. DynaPhase, a thermodynamic phase transformation model, uses parameters like thermal enthalpy, thermal conductivity, and density to calculate how the liquid steel is composed and how it will behave during solidification. Dynacs 3D, a secondary-cooling model, calculates the full 3D temperature profile at any position along the strand to achieve optimal adjustment of secondary-cooling set points. At the same time, this model reveals the point of final strand solidification for best possible control of cooling. DynaGap SoftReduction 3D, a fully automatic roll-gap control system, allows dynamic soft reduction to minimize centerline segregation for improved internal strand quality.

In addition to these systems, the 2-strand slab caster will also feature the Mold Expert Fiber technology, which increases plant availability and cuts the time needed for maintenance. While enabling detailed monitoring of the processes taking place in the caster mold, this systems’ core aim is to alarm operators to the possibility of a caster-mold breakout at the earliest possible stage.

Another key feature to this slab caster is the comprehensive quality tracking system Through-Process Optimization. An important part of TPO, Through-Process Quality Control has the following main tasks: inspecting slabs, analyzing root causes for defects, tuning the automated quality rating, process optimization, and recording and visualizing data.

Leading steel technology supplier Tenova was recently awarded a contract for the supply of a new Electric Arc Furnace at the Tosyali Bethioua plant.

EC to Impose AD Duty on of HDG Steel imports from Turkey & Russia

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
12 May, 2022, 6:18 am

The European Commission has found that Turkish & Russian hot-dipped galvanized coils were dumped in the EU and is proposing definitive anti-dumping measures in a range of 2.4-37.4%, according to a 10 May Commission document sent to interested parties. Interested parties are being granted a period within which they can make representations subsequent to the EC's latest disclosure.

-----------------------

Russia - 10.3-37.4%

NLMK – 10.3%

Severstal - 31.3%

MMK 36.6%

All other companies -37.4

-------------------

Turkey - 2.4-11%

Tatmtal – 2.4%

MMK Metalurji - 10.6%

Tezcan – 11%

Other cooperating companies – 8%

All other companies - 11%

With Turkey ranks first as the biggest HDG exporter to the EU, Vietnam, Taiwan, South Korea and India are now likely to replace Turkey's market share in the region

The investigation was initiated on 24 June 2021, upon the complaint of the European Steel Association

EC said “The commission established a causal link between the injury suffered by the union industry and the dumped imports from Russia and Turkey. The increase of dumped imports from the countries concerned coincided with a deterioration of the union industry's situation. Low-priced imports from Turkey and Russia increased exponentially and prevented the union industry from increasing sales prices and volumes following the anti-circumvention investigation concerning Chinese imports. In terms of prices, the dumped imports from the countries concerned continuously undercut those of the union industry sales prices in the union market, and in any event created substantial price pressure preventing the union industry from setting prices at sustainable levels necessary to achieve reasonable profit margins.”

The investigation was started in Jun 2021 after EU producers submitted a petition to the commission. The EC in January this year decided to skip preliminary duties, as it said the case was technically very complex and it needed more time to determine the outcome. It was originally expected to come out with a decision by the end of August.

Tata Steel verwacht 80 procent minder stof door overkappen putten
ANP - Gisteren om 11:33

IJMUIDEN (ANP) - Tata Steel verwacht dat zo'n 80 procent minder stof vrij zal komen op het terrein in Velsen-Noord. Woensdag heeft het bedrijf Harsco, dat op het fabrieksterrein onder meer een restproduct genaamd converterslak verwerkt, nieuwe slakkenputten in gebruik genomen. Die zijn overkapt, waardoor de stofverspreiding af moet nemen, aldus Tata Steel.

© Copyright ANP 2022

Door het verwerkingsproces kwamen meerdere zogenoemde grafietregens voor in de omgeving en omliggende dorpen. Om de stofwolken zoveel mogelijk te beperken, voerde Harsco in 2020 extra maatregelen in. Volgens Tata Steel waren die maatregelen effectief: "Sinds begin 2020 is het aandeel stof afkomstig van converterslak gehalveerd."

"De nieuwe putten voor converterslak hebben mobiele overkappingen", vertelt Hans Hochstenbach, manager van Harsco. "Gecombineerd met een stevig nevelgordijn moet zoveel mogelijk stoom in de put blijven en zal het stof dat vrijkomt direct weer in de afgesloten put neerslaan." De nieuwe slakkenputten zijn onderdeel van Tata Steel’s Roadmap Plus-verbeterprogramma. Daarmee wil Tata Steel de emissies en de overlast voor omwonenden verminderen. Omgevingsmanager van Tata Steel Bram Nugteren noemt de overkapping een "belangrijke mijlpaal".

Mirjam Gosen, bestuurslid van de dorpsraad van Wijk aan Zee, zegt nog vaak stof op de vensterbanken in de omgeving te vinden. "Vannacht daalde bijvoorbeeld weer zwarte stof met glitter neer", aldus Gosen, namens de raad. "Tata Steel zegt minder stof te verwachten. Wij houden het liever bij de feiten en metingen door externe partijen."

Het OM heeft Harsco eerder vervolgd voor het veroorzaken van de grafietregens tussen 2018 en 2020. De grafietregens bevatten zware metalen en PAK's, waarvan de metalen zeker voor jonge kinderen ongezond zijn. Eén incident uit 2019 is door de rechter bewezen geacht, voor de andere incidenten is Harsco in februari vrijgesproken.

Court Orders ArcelorMittal South Africa Workers to Return to Work

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
12 May, 2022, 6:15 am

ArcelorMittal South Africa announced that the National Union of Metal workers of South Africa has issued the Company with a strike notice on 9 May 2022, giving notice of its intention to embark on a strike on 11 May 2022, following a breakdown in the 2022 annual wage negotiations with NUMSA. In the union’s strike notice, NUMSA has reverted to its original 15% increase demand. ArcelorMittal South Africa said “It was hoped that this action could be averted but this has not been possible. The Company has also applied for an interdict to prevent certain employees from striking on the basis that they are involved in providing a maintenance service as contemplated in the Labor Relations Act.

ArcelorMittal South Africa CEO Mr Kobus Verster said “The Company is concerned that unsustainable increases in base pay will lead to cost pressures which will weaken our competitiveness. Our industry remains very cost sensitive, challenging and volatile. To survive and be sustainable, we need to ensure that our cost base remains competitive so that we can manage through the downturns. Communication channels between the parties remain open in the interest of speedily reaching agreement in the negotiation process. The impact and duration of the strike cannot be predicted but the Company has in place plans to mitigate the impact thereof, and to protect its people and assets, and service its customers insofar as is possible.”

NUMSA said that at the heart of the dispute was ArcelorMittal refusal to make a meaningful offer to settle in the deadlocked negotiations. NUMSA said "The bosses have tabled a final offer of only 5% across the board. They are also offering workers 2% of their salaries in cash as a monthly amount. We reject this proposal. What is a 5% increase for the lowest-paid worker who earns approximately R7 000? It is not much at all.”

In the most recent engagement on 5 May, which was conciliated by the Centre for Dispute Resolution at the Metals and Engineering Industry Bargaining Council, ArcelorMittal South Africa tabled a significantly improved final offer of 7%, comprising of a 5% increase across the board on all remuneration elements as well as a 2% cash equivalent based on all remuneration elements, to be paid monthly and in acknowledgement of the immediate term cost of living squeeze. The offer is higher in both percentage terms and absolute rand terms than what has been implemented in the steel sector (5.5% average) and elsewhere in the recent past, which is indicative of the substantially higher salary scales at ArcelorMittal South Africa compared to the rest of the industry and other sectors. NUMSA disputes this fact but has to date not presented any factual evidence to the contrary. The Company is of the firm view that its offer is fair and considers both the current economic conditions and the future sustainability of the business.

However, according to a latest media report, striking NUMSA workers are expected back at work after the labor court granted an interim order to ArcelorMittal South Africa prohibiting workers from striking for above-inflation wages.

US Department of Commerce also preliminarily determines that no company subject to this review established its eligibility for a separate rate and all entries of subject merchandise during the POR will be subject to the China-wide entity rate. US Department of Commerce invitea interested parties to comment on these preliminary results.

US Department of Commerce finds that no company subject to this administrative review has established its eligibility for a separate rate. Because 15 companies did not submit separate rate applications or certifications, or no-shipment certifications, and two companies which submitted no-shipment certifications failed to respond to the results of our no-shipment inquiry to demonstrate they had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, US Department of Commerce preliminarily determine that these 17 companies are not eligible for a separate rate and are part of the China-wide entity.

EU Electrical Appliances Industry to Shrink by 3% YoY in 2022

European Steel Association EUROFER in latest Economic and steel market outlook 2022-2023 said that “Electrical domestic appliances industry activity in the fourth quarter of 2021 in the fourth quarter of 2021 output in the electrical domestic appliances sector dropped by 2.8% for the second time in a raw. The third quarter with minus 5.3% saw the end of a very positive trend started in the third quarter of 2020, with a bigger-than-expected recovery in output after the removal of lockdown measures and widespread remote working across the EU, which boosted demand for home appliances and other related goods. However, despite the drop experienced over the last two quarters, the sector still records high output volumes in historical terms. On an annual basis, after 2020 moderate fall of 2.1% compared to other EU steel-using sectors, output rebounded by 6.7% in 2021, thanks to very positive performances recorded over the first half of the year.”

EUROFER said “Output in domestic appliances is set to drop in 2022 by 3.3% and to marginally recover by 2% in 2023. Growth is expected to record negative growth over the first half of 2022 as a result of the already mentioned supply chain disruptions and effects of the war in Ukraine. On the other hand, some supportive factors will provide positive contribution to growth: working from home will remain widespread in the EU over the next two years, albeit to a lower extent than during the C0V1D-19 pandemic. In the longer term, developments linked to the so-called Internet of Things should also benefit the sector, but the impact of these applications is not likely to be visible before 2023.
