Brainstorming on sustainable ironmaking solutions

Not scheduled
Oral Presentation New technologies under research and development with a promise to change the future (H2 based, in-bath technologies etc.)


Dr Rainer Bertling (PowerMill GmbH)


This paper will discuss the possibilities to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions in the BF process by hot coke, sinter or DRI charging, injection of alternative fuels and potential consequences on the overall process. Such revolutionary changes would have major impacts on the ironmaking process and the respective equipment. After verification with various involved technology and operation partners such modifications are put on the table to start an open discussion for the development of a more sustainable ironmaking process.
