Mr PK Rath, CMD,RINL-VSP inaugurated a two day national seminar on “Global Trends in NR-HR Coke Making Technologies” today in Ukkunagaram. The seminar is being jointly organized by RINL-VSP & IIM, Visakhapatnam Chapter. While delivering his inaugural address, Sri Rath observed that as per National Steel Policy 2017, India has a target to produce 300 mt of Crude Steel by 2030 and to achieve this target 30 mt of coke making facilities are required in addition to the existing , envisaged facilities and coke import. He highlighted the need to optimize the resources available and look for cost-effective technologies while setting up new Coke Oven batteries.

Mr Rath said that one of the current trends in the production of metallurgical coke is the Non-Recovery/Heat Recovery (NR—HR) ovens, presently located in China, India, USA, Brazil, Australia and Colombia. He said the advantages of NR-HR ovens over by-products or conventional ovens look attractive like low cost capital, high energy –efficiently, better environmental performance, increased coking strength and less pollution in the steel industry. He expressed the hope that the seminar would deliberate in detail and understand the technology and its advantages.

Mr P Raychaudhury, Director (Commercial) & In-charge Director (Projects), observed that Non-Recovery/Heat Recovery coke making technology would be a promising technology for future particularly in developing countries like India which is facing coal shortage. He said that integrated steel plants like RINL play a vital role in bringing out new technologies to produce steel at a competitive price.
