Guest Lecture on Mineral Processing from TATA Steel

India is a developing country, power and steel are two major wheels on which the development journey take place. Our national steel policy-2017 aims 300MT steel production by 2030 and aspires to increase per capita steel consumption from 60kg to 160 kg by 2030. Steel industry demands certain quality of raw materials but Indian raw materials faces a ‘trilemma’ i.e. deteriorating grades of iron ore, high-ash difficult to wash coal and stringent environmental norms.

Mineral processing is the driver which addresses this trilemma. The developments in the mineral processing domain like Vertical Pulsating High Gradient Magnetic Separation, advanced flotation technologies, automation, real-time measurement systems and big-data analytics have enabled the beneficiation of low grade iron ore and high-ash difficult to wash coal while minimizing the environmental impacts. Mineral processing is a bridge between mining and smelting which not only caters the desired raw quality requirement but also reduces the freight cost along with environmental benefits like lower CO2 footprint and lower water consumption etc.

TATA Steel is one of the pioneer organization in India which is taking lead in this field. Considering the geological complexity of different deposits, each mineral deposit requires a specific set of processes for beneficiation of the low-grade ore to maximize the economic gain. For example, our coal washeries employs some of state of the art technologies like Reflux Classifier, advanced flotation mechanism, automated sampling and ash analysers and our new washery is coming with intermediate size beneficiation.
