Blast Furnace is a classic example of “Adversity converted to
 opportunity “by ESSAR team at Hazira. When CFMCC, the
Chinese company left the project in Sept09, for VISA problem
  in a critical stage. It was really an acute adverse situation.
But the Team Blast Furnace took the challenge. Majority of the
 remaining job was awarded to EPIL with necessary support
   And close monitoring and within a very short period The
Project area is humming with never before activities with 2600
                 workers working on 24X 7 basis.
 Meanwhile some of the utilities like power and Instrument air
System are commissioned and the team is rushing towards the
           target of Hot Metal tapping on daily basis.
 Blast Furnace: Works on counter-current
  principle to reduce iron ore to molten iron
 Raw materials: Lump ore, coke, sinter,
  pellets, limestone, dolomite, quartzite, Mn-
 Output: Molten iron, slag, gases, flue dust
