HYL NEWS December 2015

Fifty eight years ago in December of 1957, the world’s first commercially successful direct reduction plant started up in Monterrey, Mexico. At the time, the driving force behind the development of the early years of our direct reduction technology was the urgent need to secure quality iron units for what was a small EAF-based steel producer. So what is today’s innovative and highly successful ENERGIRON technology arose as a way to solve a problem and improve a steel company’s overall business competitiveness.
