SULA 2 - Energy in steel and base metal production. Master plan for an energy technology research programme 1993-1998

Technical Report:

Abstract

As a part of the `Energy Research 1993 - 1998`, financed by the Ministry of Trade and Industry, a new research programme is composed for the steel and base metals industry. The name of the programme is Sula 2 (sula = melt) - Energy efficient steel and metal production. The basis for the programme contents was: - adaption of the principle of sustainable development in the steel and base metals industry - reduction of the specific energy consumption of producing processes - reduction of environmental impact - know-how created in Finland as well as available scientists and research equipment - promoting of export of technology. As a result of the investigation work the research work will be focused on the following areas: - basic processes for iron and steel production - production of zinc - production of ferrochromium and stainless steel - pyrometallurgical production of copper and nickel based on the Outokumpu flash smelting process - the rolling and heat treatment of steel. The resulting reduction of specific energy consumption on a time span of 5-10 years as the effect of the projects started in the beginning of the programme is calculated to: - fuels and reductants 2500 TJ/a -  More>>

The influence on energy consumption of the projects with a long implementation time (smelting reduction, strip casting) is 5000-6000 TJ/a and 200 GWh/a if the research work is successful. In addition to the reduction in energy consumption, significant improvements in reduction of environmental impact and in the promotion of technology export can be expected}
