Automation and Process Control SystemCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Coke Making|
|Energy Savings Potential||
This technology can lead to fuel savings of about 10%. Estimated energy savings therefore are calculated to be 0.15 MBtu/ton (0.17 GJ/tonne) coke.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
The technology leads to emissions reduction of 3.8 Kg CO2/tonne coke.
Retrofit capital costs are US $0.37/tonne coke.
Automation and Process Control System Publications
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) energy guide, Energy Efficiency Improvement and Cost Saving Opportunities for the U.S. Iron and Steel Industry, discusses energy efficiency practices and technologies that can be implemented in iron and steel manufacturing plants. This guide provides current real world examples of iron and steel plants saving energy and reducing cost and carbon dioxide emissions.
The State–of-the-Art Clean Technologies (SOACT) for Steelmaking Handbook is developed as part of the Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate program and seeks to catalog the best available technologies and practices to save energy and reduce environmental impacts in the steel industry. Its purpose is to share information about commercialized or emerging technologies and practices that are currently available to increase energy efficiency and environmental performance.
