The project generates electricity by first generating steam using waste heat contained in the waste flue gases released from an iron kiln. The purpose of the project is to achieve better energy efficiency, sustainable development in the industry and improve the working environment of sponge iron-making process.
The purpose of the proposed project activity is to generate electricity by generating steam using waste heat contained in the waste flue gases released from 2 numbers of ABC (After Burning Chamber) from two numbers of DRI (Direct Reduced Iron) sponge iron kiln having 350 TPD X 2 Nos. The heat contained in waste gases will be transferred to water which converts water in to steam in two numbers of WHRBs (Waste Heat Recovery Boilers 38tph each) producing aggregate 76 tph steam at 66 kg/cm pressure and 490±5C temperature to generate total 15 MW electricity from Waste Heat.
The project activity achieves better energy efficiency, sustainable development in the industry and improves the working environment of Sponge Iron-making process. The power so generated mainly used to meet the captive power requirement of Shyam DRI Plant itself. The net result is reduction in the demand of electricity from coal based captive power generation and resultant reduction in GHG emissions.
