Abstract

The Steel Policy of India, 2017 aspires to achieve 300 million tonnes of steel-making capacity by 2030. This would translate into additional consumption of manganese and chrome ore other than iron ore as essential raw material for steel making. Similarly, ferro-alloys are one of the important inputs in the manufacture of alloys and special steel. The growth of the ferro-alloy industry is, thus, linked with the development of the iron and steel industry. With the abundant resources, there is huge potential of manganese ore and chromite and ferro-alloy industry in India. India has huge resources of manganese and chrome but the import of these minerals is increasing. Due to limited availability of high-grade manganese ore and chromite reserve in the country, lower grade ore has to be upgraded by beneficiation.
