Tosyali Algérie Sets World Production Record
Tosyali Algérie A.Ş. (Tosyali), utilizing MIDREX® Technology, in only its second full year of operation, produced more than 2.23 million tons of direct reduced iron (DRI) in 2020, which is a world record for a single direct reduction module. The 2.5 million tons per year (t/y) DRI plant began using hot DRI (HDRI) at the electric arc furnace (EAF) melt shop in February 2019. HDRI made up almost 72% of total production in 2020 (1.6 million tons), with average metallization of about 94% and carbon averaging around 2.2%. Iron ore pellets feeding the DRI plant were supplied predominately by Tosyali Algérie’s own 4.0 million t/y pellet plant on site.
