Utilization of Waste Fuels in SinteringCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Sinter Plant|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Energy savings of around 0.18 GJ/tonne sinter were reported from European applications.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
Emissions reduction of 19.5 Kg CO2/t-sinter can be achieved.
One plant reportedly developed a waste recovery and waste injection system, at a cost of about $25 million, to recycle 180 000 t/y of various materials. Capital costs were estimated to be $0.29/t-sinter. The payback time was estimated as 0.5 years (US EPA, 2010. p. 15)
