Objective

This proposal aims at lowering the environmental impact of steel making, by reducing greenhouse gas emission, and saving energy and natural resources. The expected reduction at short term is around 10% waiting for higher reduction coming from ULCOS results.

The means are:
- the use of charcoal, a renewable source of carbon, in large blast furnaces, either by addition in the coal blend, or by injection through the tuyeres
- the enhancement of coke reactivity, to decrease the reserve zone temperature and the carbon need of the blast furnace
- the intensive use of wastes as reductant for the BF, through gasification and injection of the produced gas
- the addition of waste plastics into the coal blend.
