Retrofitting equipment for efficient use of variable feedstock in metal making processes

Project description

New technology to improve metals' recycling

Metals can be recycled over and over again without loss of their properties. This is not only good news for the circular economy, it’s also big business. The global metal recycling industry (estimated at EUR 250 billion) is growing at an unprecedented rate and the opportunities are boundless. To meet growing demands, Europe’s metal production plants need to be retrofitted with appropriate sensors for scrap analysis and furnace operation. The EU-funded REVaMP project will develop, adapt and apply new retrofitting technologies to address the increasing variability in feedstock. The project’s findings will improve the selection of feedstock in terms of material and energy efficiency. The project will use new process control and decision support tools. Model-based software tools will also be developed.
