Optimisation of the oxygen use in EAF steelmaking by direct process monitoring of the chemical melt reactions (OxyMon)

EU Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS) 

Technical Group 2: “Steelmaking Processes” 

Initial situation: 

The EAF has a high demand on electric and chemical energy for melting scrap. In the EAF chemical energy is applied in different ways: 

All these contributions are hard to separate, thus the individual influence on the overall furnace performance and the efficiency of the different oxygen sources is difficult to determine and to optimise.

Objectives of the project are to: 

Ways and means: 

To investigate and to optimise the efficiency of the different chemical energy sources, dedicated measurement and modelling tools are used:
