15 years after being released from the constraints of economic and bureaucratic shackles through legislative reform, India has truly been unleashed. India’s economy now grows at 8% per annum and attracts almost $7 billion annually in foreign direct investment. India’s companies now compete for, and win, acquisitions of foreign companies in steel, pharmaceutical, and retail sectors worldwide. India’s services have become a beacon of quality and reliance throughout the world of information technology.

The 4th Annual India Business Conference at Columbia Business School invites you to take part in India’s experience. We are bringing you business people, financiers, investors, entrepreneurs, scholars, politicians, innovators, and leaders from across the globe – all of whom are intimately involved in India’s growth, success, and challenges. We welcome you to the conference to share your own experiences, to network with the speakers and other believers, or just to find out more about the interesting phenomena called India.

  1. New Technology of Iron Ore Pelletization for DRI / Sponge Iron

    New Generation for Sponge Iron Steel Plant / Industries

    I have developed & Research one new technology in Sponge Iron i.e. Iron Ore (powder) Pelletisation. This concept is developed physically and practically. After completion of this experiment we have tested this material by Joyti Spectro Analysis Pvt Limited, Hyderabad . Those Results compared with Essar Steel Product. This result is closed to Essar Steel pellets.

    Presently, Iron ore pellets are being used by the small plants as well as big plants in India . It is natural material, that the raw material receiving from the iron ore mines in this material 20% to 25% of powder (i.e, 0 – 5 mm) is available. Some plants of the mining ore is being used by the ARC Furnaces. Some small plants using the same are facing some problems. By utilizing the ore powder, we can get kiln coating & ring formation also. But, for removing the same, we have to stop the Rotary kiln, once, from 60 to 90 days. Not only that, certain precautions, like separation of unburned coal, separation of unburned pallets from the Sponge Iron, material received from the kiln, before dispatch. In the present circumstances, they are using injet coal, coal lumps, coal chips,& lime stone may be used as fuel in Rotary Kiln. Still ore (i.e., 0.5mm) is not being used higher quantities.

    This technology may be used in every plant, from 50 TPD plant to such a major plant’s. Without facing any problem Iron Ore may be used. By this technology we need not use injet coal / coal lumps / chips & lime stone in the raw material and also no need of separation after receiving from kiln. By this technology 20% to 25% ore of wastage powder from mines may be used, so that the cost of Fuel & production cost will be decreased.

    Lakhs of tones deposits of iron ore is available in Indian iron ore mines, like Karnataka, NMDC, Madhya Pradesh and Goa . Out of which 40 – 50% is being used and out of the rest of the some is being got exported to the other countries like, China , Japan , Germany etc. By this technology 80% to 90% of ore powder (0 – 5mm) material may be used by small or major plants without any problems.

    This opinion is being expressed after keen observation on this technology, since 2 years. Interested persons may contact for more details & information to the below Email address.
