Development of Oxygen-rich Furnace System for reduced CO2 and NOx emissionsCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Rolling Mills|
|Energy Savings Potential||
By applying this technology, fuel firing rate was decreased from 325-365 KW to 200-220 KW.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
Potential savings are 40 – 45% in fuel usage. A corresponding reduction in CO2 emissions is obvious.
Fuel savings are offset to some extent by the cost of the Oxygen. However O2 production technologies are becoming more economical.
