Apparatus for Producing Hot Briquetted/ Direct Reduced Iron using Solid Coal and Gaseous Reductant

Invention relates to a technology for producing hot briquetted/ direct reduced iron in a simple, efficient, environment friendly and cost effective way by a hybrid process using solid and gaseous coal as reductant. This uses non coking coal, which is of low grade and cost, and abundantly available in India, and avoids use of natural gas as reductant and thereby reduces manufacturing cost. Process allows small scale and medium scale investors to manufacture iron with good quality and less impurities.
