The process was widely accepted by almost all developing countries where generation of scrap was less in comparison to requirements. Steel produced by recycling process found much cheaper than the steel produced by blast Furnace process. The scrap vanished gradually causing threat to the Arc furnace where BF-BOF process continued its predominance as age-old process in the world. During 70’s, the reduction of iron ore in small way was carried out in China in the same manner as retile was produced from illuminate and birth of DRI / Sponge Iron was brought into existence.
The coal base DRI rotary kiln process for production of DRI / Sponge Iron has its many parameters to increase the quality as well as productivity which need careful operations through out the process. Number of DRI processes came up and rotary kiln process with solid coal as fuel found to be most acceptable process in the world.

Advantages of using sponge iron in steel making
Sponge iron is a metallic product produced through direct reduction of iron ore in the solid state. It is a substitute for scrap and is mainly used in making steel through the secondary route. The process of sponge iron making aims to remove the oxygen from iron ore. The quality of sponge iron is primarily ascertained by the percentage of metallization (removal of oxygen),which is the ratio of metallic iron to the total iron present in the product.
