    Hallow sir,
    Good Morning,


    RAGHUVAMSI TECHNOLOGIES AP. has developed iron ore pelletzation technology this advanced unique (iron ore fines converted to DRI ) technology which is not available established till now in India as well as other countries also.

    Through this technology small, medium and major sponge iron manufacturing industries can directly convert as iron ore fines easily. Because of this technology sponge iron and steel manufactures will get lot of benefits.

    We are planning to Commercialize technology, small and medium sponge iron manufactures were searching for new technologies, all steel and sponge iron producers are interested to utilize our technology.

    Unfortunately I don’t have fund to start the project, anyone support us financially start up -loan or credit type funding, I would like Commercialized pallet plant as early as possible. We are not financially sound enough. We have applied for patent rights in JULY 2008, Through This technology fines can utilized properly, through this technology sponge iron production may level may expect increase up to 5.0 LACKS of CRORES per ANUM,

    Now a day’s iron ore fines utilization is burning problem for Indian sponge iron manufacturers, and GOVT of India has already banned (IRON ORE) exports, day by day iron ore fines generation going up. Pebbles (lumps) not available as per required quantity.

    We need financial assistance to commercialize this technology.

    Thanking you,
