HIsmeltCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Smelting Reduction|
|Energy Savings Potential||
With no raw material processing required, the HIsmelt process uses less energy to produce each tonne of hot metal.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
This technology can reduce CO2 emissions per tonne of hot metal by close to 20% when compared to the typical BF route.
Production costs are in the range of 95% to 65% of the conventional route costs.
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.
