Imperial Group provides an array of scrap and raw material from iron ore, coke and coking coal, to pig iron and DRI; ensuring the purest steel throughout the production process. Most of the group’s trading involves complex financing techniques.
Commonly referred to asrocks and minerals; metallic iron can be economically extracted. Varying in color from dark
grey, bright yellow, deep purple, to rusty red, it is in the form of iron oxide.
Iron ore is a vital element to making steel; it is used to make pig iron, one of steel’s main raw materials.
Coal is an umbrella for a range of solid organic fuels and refers to a series of combustible sedimentary rock
materials covering a continuous quality range. This chainof elements is divided into four categories: anthracite, metallurgical coal, sub-metallic coal, lignite.
Commonly referred to as metallurgical coal – or coking coal – it is a key ingredient in the steel making process.
Pig iron is a crude iron resulting from the blast furnace. Developed to produce steel, wrought iron, or ingot iron,
it is the steel’s production main raw material. It is a major intermediate material in the steelmaking process; pig iron is the product of melting iron ore, coke and limestone in a blast furnace.
Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) – or also known as sponge iron – is the processed iron ore that is iron-rich, which will be used as a scrap substitute in electric furnace steelmaking. It is created by the decrease (elimination of oxygen) of iron oxide (iron ore) at temperatures that are below iron’s fusion point.
