Increased Blast Furnace Top Pressure (> 0.5 Bar Gauge)Costs & Benefits
|Parent Process: Blast Furnace System|
|Energy Savings Potential||
This technology reduces coke rate and tuyere level injectants. Furnaces operating at high pressures can produce electricity in order of 0.35 GJ/t-HM if the system has recovery turbines installed
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
Lower emissions due to reduced energy consumption are expected.

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.
