Contracts for six EAF Consteel Evolution plants in China

Steelmaking industries in China are starting to use a different approach in their business in China, converting their steel shops plants with EAF technology. In order to improve the reduction rate of CO2 emissions promoted by Chinese government, the Chinese steelmakers are starting to increase the share of electrical steelmaking in comparison to blast furnace (BF) or basic oxygen furnace (BOF). During the last eight months, Tenova of Italy has been awarded contracts for a total of six electrical arc furnaces (EAF) Consteel Evolution in China. This technology, in terms of steelmaking from scrap, allows savings in electrical consumption, high productivity, high-quality steel, protection of the environment and safety. Tenova Consteel system is the only fully tested industrial process that continuously pre-heats and feeds metallic charge into the EAF, while simultaneously controlling gaseous emissions.
