  • Process Technology & Research

    Process Technology & Research is organised into a number of specific areas.

    These are:


    Charter of the Iron Making department:

    The development of new or improved processes for the production of high quality hot metal at low costs, including the environmental and recycling aspects of the core processes of ironmaking.
    The engineering of thermo-mechanical properties of refractories applied in the process chain in Tata Steel.

    Knowlegde Groups:
    - Blast Furnace Development & Alternative Ironmaking
    - Ferrous Materials
    - Coal & Coke 
    - Materials Engineering & Mathematical Modelling
