Current and future role of DRI and HBI – value-in-use in EAF and BOF applications

Not scheduled
Oral Presentation DRI as an alternative raw material for iron and steelmaking (applications in blast furnace, EAF etc.)


Mr Stefan Einfalt (voestalpine Texas LLC)


voestalpine has ramped up its 2 Mio. mt p.a. HBI plant in Corpus Christi, Texas end of 2016 and has since then gathered extensive experience not only on the production and use of HBI in its own BOF based steel making operations but also on the products´ supply to its mostly EAF-based international customers. This paper will provide insight on the current and future value-in-use and importance of DRI and HBI in different steelmaking processes. It will focus on optimization of feedstock considering product quality requirements and their future development on the one hand side and the global need for further de-carbonization of the industrial sector on the other side.
