Pyongyang, July 17 (KCNA) — A new Juche-oriented method of producing iron has been established at the Posan Iron Plant in the DPRK.
By the new method, which differs from the existing one, the production processes are shortened and iron ore lumps are directly used in production with the help of a new charging device. And such melting technical indices as the amount of fuel consumption, length of flame, inside temperature of furnace, reducing rate of raw materials have been bettered.
Scientists in the field of the metal industry and workers and technicians of the Posan Iron Plant solved in a scientific way the mineralogical and metallurgical properties of iron ores that are now used in the production, thus improving the method.
The production process by the new method is simple and highly productive while ensuring quality and extraction rate of iron on a high level.
According to Sin Kyu Sam, director of the Science and Technology Department of the Ministry of Metal Industry, the new method has further improved the existing Juche-based iron production method that depends entirely on iron ore and anthracite rich in the country. It, thus, opens a bright production prospect and marks a giant stride in further strengthening the Juche character and independence of the metal industry.
