Cold Rolling - Automated Monitoring and Targeting System.Costs & Benefits

Parent Process: Rolling Mills
Energy Savings Potential

A system installed at the UK based strip mill reduced energy demand of the cold rolling mill by approximately 15-20% (Worrell et al., 2010. p. 104) or approximately by 0.22 GJ/t-product (US EPA, 2010. p. 30).

CO2 Emission Reduction Potential

US flag Emission reductions are estimated to be 35.3 kg CO2/t-product.

Costs

 

Installation costs were estimated to be $1.72/t-product, or $1.0/t-crude steel. The payback time is estimated as 0.8 years.
