Six EAF Consteel Evolution Plants for Tenova in China

During the last eight months, Tenova has been awarded important contracts for a total of six Electrical Arc Furnaces (EAF) Consteel Evolution 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). This trend is evidenced by the strong interest for Tenova EAF Consteel Evolution.

The awarding of the above mentioned contracts underlined the recognized advantages for this technology that, in terms of steel making from scrap, allows savings in electrical consumption, high productivity, high quality steel, protection of the environment and safety.

Thanks to the continuous improvement in research, Tenova Consteel system is the only fully tested industrial process, with more than fifty plants in operation, which continuously pre-heats and feeds metallic charge to the EAF, while simultaneously controlling gaseous emissions.
