Other information: Janki Corp Limited (JCL) was originally incorporated in the year 1993 as a public limited company under the name Janki Processors Limited. Today,the business operates both a textile division and a steel division.
The sponge iron (or DRI) manufacturing plant is the nucleus and the basis for the establishment of a wholly integrated steel plant. The direct reduction plant has a capacity of 180,000 tonnes of DRI per annum. The manufacturing unit is setup at Sidiginamola village, Bellary District, Karnataka.
JCL produces iron ore pellets from iron ore fines using grate-kiln technology. This technology allows production of superior grade feed material for DRI and blast furnace operations. Once the fines are wet ground, they are dewatered, and the resulting concentrate is then mixed with binder and other additives to produce pelletiser feedstock. Pellets are heated, dried and indurated; with the majority used for in-house production of DRI. Direct reduced iron is produced by reducing iron ore pellets using non-coking coal in a rotary kiln. Pellet plant capacity at JCL is 0.6 million tonnes per annum.
