Energy efficient, primary production of manganese ferroalloys through the application of novel energy systems in the drying and pre-heating of furnace feed materials.

Project description

Sustainable production of manganese alloys

Manganese is the second most abundant transition metal after iron. The greatest percentage of the manganese created is leveraged in the form of ferromanganese and silicomanganese alloys to produce steel and iron. However, manganese alloy production is energy-intensive and accounts for large amounts of CO2 emissions. The EU-funded PreMa project will demonstrate a suite of technologies for manganese ore pre-treatment that utilise energy and material streams more efficiently and decrease CO2 emissions. PreMa will explore innovative energy recovery technologies including CO2-rich off-gas and waste heat. Researchers have set ambitious targets: 5 % reduction in operating costs, 20 % increase in energy efficiency and 20 % reduction in total CO2 emissions.
