Cokers DMT Commissions Coke–Oven By–Product Plant
The Essen based consulting and engineering company DMT together with the EPC company McNally Bharat Engineering (MBE) from Kolkata has designed, engineered, supplied, built and now put into operation a complete state-of-the-art by-product plant for the cleaning of coke oven gas.
Burnpur/India – The plant, which is situated in Burnpur in Eastern India, belongs to IISCO Steel Plant, a company of the Steel Authority of India (SAIL). The system cleans the coke oven gas collected from the coke oven battery, making it ready for further use in steelworks and for underfiring the battery. In doing so, the plant produces high-quality, saleable by-products, such as tar, ammonium sulphate and sulphur.
The project is part of a steelworks extension program at IISCO, in which a completely new steel mill is being built alongside the old one to increase capacity.
