Increasing Demand for Clean Fuel Energy Source to Promote Growth

Finely grounded powder during burning emits high temperature and energy as it goes through an oxidation process with zero carbon emission. The iron oxide obtained as a residual product through this process is recycled and the powdered iron serves as an energy storage medium. Owing to their several benefits such as low emission level, cost-effective, and sustainability, powdered iron is gaining traction as a clean fuel energy source across the globe. This is expected to boost the global iron powder market growth during the forecast period.
