RomeltCosts & Benefits

Parent Process: Smelting Reduction
Energy Savings Potential

Its Coal consumption is reported to be 900-1200 Kg/tonne. Energy consumption per tonne steel will be lower.

CO2 Emission Reduction Potential

Since no coke oven plant, sinter or pellet plant is required, a significant emissions reduction compared to conventional primary ironmaking can be expected.
