Our R&D team applies technological expertise and practical ingenuity to work on the advancement of every aspect of our steel plant operations, including:
Our R&D team also works collaboratively with several research and educational institutions in India as part of our desire and duty to contribute to the growth of the country’s manufacturing skills and knowledge base.
R&D has been instrumental in the development of several grades of steel applied in a variety of sectors. Many of these grades are being produced for the first time in India and are substituting imports.
While the development of new, superior and value-added products is critical in attaining steel industry leadership, our commitment to doing so in a safe and responsible manner is resolute.
Our R&D team has developed several new methods to improve our manufacturing processes and recycle by-products and have been granted several patents. One notable example has been the installation of a 500 TPD Corex coal briquetting facility at Hazira with a patented process technology for recycling.
