Siemens JET process enables more flexibility in steel production, lower CO2 emissions

Siemens JET process enables more flexibility in steel production, lower CO2 emissions 26 January 2014 The newly developed Siemens JET Process enables steel mills to adapt their production processes more flexibly to raw material prices and emission regulations. The process provides sufficient heat energy to melt a high proportion of scrap and sponge iron into liquid pig iron. As a result, steel producers can more easily take advantage of low prices for these materials. Further, because producing pig iron in a blast furnace creates especially large amounts of carbon dioxide, this new process also reduces CO2 emissions. JET technology is already operating successfully in a steel mill in Asia. The Siemens Jet Process increases the flexibility of raw material selection on the converter. Oxygen, lime and coal are blown in through bottom tuyeres and a top lance blows hot jet onto...
