2.5 million tons of hot and cold DRI

The 2.5 million tons per year MIDREX® direct reduction plant of Algerian Qatari Steel (AQS) is capable of producing both hot DRI (HDRI) and cold DRI (CDRI) and is equipped to transfer and charge HDRI to the nearby AQS steel mill to take advantage of the retained heat.

The DRI plant was supplied by Midrex Technologies and its consortium partner, Paul Wurth.

The AQS Bellara Steel Complex is equipped with the most advanced technology in the world and includes nine environmentally friendly production units, which guarantee maximum production efficiency and product quality that meets international standards.

The DR plant is the first unit in steel production at our complex. We are so proud with the start-up and first production of HDRI for the steel shop. The DR plant will be operated 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, with the nominal capacity of 312 tons per hour.
