Steel CHP-Blast Furnace Gas

Reducing operating costs and improving the environmental footprint are high priorities for steel producers today. Blast Furnace Plus, a new technology offered by Air Products and Danieli Corus, accomplishes this by transforming the blast furnace into a combined iron-maker and fuel producer for high-efficiency power production. This patent-pending technology reduces blast furnace operating costs while raising the calorific content in the top gas, enabling combined cycle energy production. Elevated hydrocarbon and oxygen injection rates minimize coke consumption and raise hot metal productivity. The resulting higher calorific top gas can be used for high-efficiency combined cycle power generation to help maximize energy recovery. In addition, the cycle design facilitates efficient CO2 capture.
