BEE and IIT Roorkee signs agreement
On October 6, 2022, the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) and the Indian Institute of Technology (R)-Roorkee signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) for “R&D and demonstration on optimization of the performance of rotary kiln to maximize% metallization including use of natural gas/syngas as reductant.”
The MoA intends to facilitate energy efficiency in the iron and steel industry’s coal-based DRI units, with the following advantages:
Metallization in the kiln has improved.
• Optimal kiln energy use
• Fly ash and moist ash reduction
• Shortening the time spent in the kiln
• Lower consumption of coal
