Tosyali Algérie A.S¸. (Tosyali), utilizing MIDREX® technology, in only its second full year of operation, produced more than 2.23 million metric tons of direct reduced iron (DRI) in 2020, which is a world record for a single direct reduction module. The 2.5-million-metric-tons-per-year DRI plant began using hot DRI (HDRI) at the electric arc furnace meltshop in February 2019. HDRI made up almost 72% of total production in 2020 (1.6 million metric tons), with average metallization of about 94% and carbon averaging around 2.2%. Iron ore pellets feeding the DRI plant were supplied predominantly by Tosyali’s own 4.0-million-metric-tons-per-year pellet plant on-site. See page 5 for more details.
