Preparation of alternative raw materials for resource development to use in Indian ferro alloy and steel industrial applications

Srikant, Satya Sai; Rao, Raghupatruni Bhima


The present paper deals mainly with iron bearing titania enriched ilmenite raw mineral, its production, exports and imports and consumption of Ferro alloy industries. This paper not only reveals the recovery of iron from iron bearing titania mineral ilmenite with physical beneficiation methods but also gives the process of preparation and separation of titania slag and iron metal by using microwave heat treatment. The process of recovery of iron as a by-product from ilmenite mineral, which abundantly available along the coastal line of India, is economical and by which the conservation of some higher grade iron ores of the country will be possible for future. The products obtained from this process can be treated as alternative raw materials resources for steel and iron making industries.
