Hot DRI/HBI Charging to EAFCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Electric Arc Furnace|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Charging hot DRI at temperatures up to 600 °C rather than cold DRI results in a melting energy reduction of 150 kWh/t-steel (>0.5 GJ/ton).
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
Environmental emissions are lower due to energy savings.
Hot DRI/HBI Charging to EAF 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.
