Energy revolution in the blast furnace

28.04.2024

It’s impossible to imagine modern life without metals, but today’s metal industry is responsible for a third of all industrial greenhouse gas emissions. Dierk Raabe and Martin Palm, scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Sustainable Materials in Düsseldorf, are working on a more sustainable way of producing and using metals. Their ideas could completely revolutionise the metal industry.

Secondary metallurgy: chemical composition is key

02.02.2024

The strict requirements for modern steels make it necessary for molten crude steel to undergo subsequent treatment. This applies to both the blast furnace-to-converter and electric arc furnace methods. In the steel life cycle, the secondary metallurgy stage takes place between the converter or electric arc furnace and the casting system.

Transforming industry is inevitable

15.01.2024

Climate change is now affecting our daily life. Most recently, political measures have been initiated to slow advancing temperature increases. One of the results of this political activity is the Paris Agreement, which stipulates climate goals for the first time. The aim is to achieve these goals through green industry transformation, among other measures.
