DRI (Sponge Iron)

JBG is the market leader in manufacture of DRI in the Eastern Region with an annual group capacity of 3,45,000 MTs . In fact, our Group was the first in the State to pioneer and successfully set up the first coal based DRI plant in Raniganj, West Bengal in 1999.

The raw materials, namely Iron ore and Coal, are procured by our Group from the best mines in the country and through established linkages from different subsidiaries of Coal India Limited respectively. This gives us an edge to manufacture better quality of Sponge Iron with high Fe metallic content in the range of 82%.

The Sponge Iron manufactured at our units is distinct due to its high metallic content and consistent chemical and physical characteristics. This provides furnace owners flexibility in preparing their charge mix to produce finer quality than what is possible using steel scrap only.
