Heat Recovery from Cooling WaterCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Rolling Mills|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Energy savings of 0.0 GJ/t-rolled steel is estimated by the implementation of the technology, with an increase of 0.17 kWh/t in electricity consumption (Worrell et al., 2010. p. 104).
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
Emission reductions are estimated at 1.9 kg CO2/t-rolled steel (US EPA, 2010. p.10).
Retrofit Capital Cost is $1.3/t-rolled steel. Operation and maintenance costs can increase by $0.11/t-product (US EPA, 2010. p. 29).
Heat Recovery from Cooling Water 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.
