Coal-Based HYL ProcessCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Direct Reduced Iron|
|Energy Savings Potential||
This technology does not require coking coal, coke and natural gas. Production of hot DRI that could be charged to EAF to achieve significant energy savings.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
Environmental benefits are comparable to Blast Furnace route.
Low quality and low cost coal is used.
Coal-Based HYL Process Publications
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.
