Raw material assessment for electric arc furnace steelmaking
2015 (English)In: Proceedings of the 6th International Congress on the Science and Technology of Steelmaking, ICS 2015, Chinese Society for Metals , 2015, 288-292 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this study, steelmaking in an Electric Arc Furnace, EAF, using two types of recycled scrap with different levels of tramp-Cu and different prices, is compared to steelmaking where part of the burden is changed to a virgin iron source. By using the tool Rawmatmix® for optimizing EAF charges, a Value in Use, ViU, is calculated for Blast Furnace Hot metal, Pig Iron, Hot and Cold DRI and HBI. The result shows that the ViU per ton material differs from +57% to -39% for the different sources. Using virgin material also affects the environmental profile of the product and especially the Global Warming Potential, with different CO2 burdens depending on source. The paper shows the importance of making ViU calculations when establishing a raw material price.
