Industrial energy storage – hopes are high at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

28.04.2024

Using liquid metal, researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) want to store heat at extremely high temperatures in future. According to KIT, the first prototype for a liquid metal heat store worldwide with a capacity of 100 kilowatt hours of heat has proven that the principle works and offers great potential for defossilising industry.

Producing climate-neutral raw materials with sustainable energy

28.04.2024

A publication issued by the German Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (Dechema) about carbon sources and their integration into power-to-X added value chains focuses on options for separating and using carbon dioxide for sustainable production pathways. The technology is an important part of decarbonising the metal industries.

Secondary metallurgy: chemical composition is key

02.02.2024

The strict requirements for modern steels make it necessary for molten crude steel to undergo subsequent treatment. This applies to both the blast furnace-to-converter and electric arc furnace methods. In the steel life cycle, the secondary metallurgy stage takes place between the converter or electric arc furnace and the casting system.

Transforming industry is inevitable

15.01.2024

Climate change is now affecting our daily life. Most recently, political measures have been initiated to slow advancing temperature increases. One of the results of this political activity is the Paris Agreement, which stipulates climate goals for the first time. The aim is to achieve these goals through green industry transformation, among other measures.

Is it all product carbon footprint or what?

07.11.2023

The steel and metal industry needs to decarbonize. Almost every company has therefore now set its own climate targets in order to reduce its CO₂-emissions. However, there is still no standardized definition for green steel.

Green transformation: clear bonus for steel scrap

17.10.2023

In the course of decarbonization, the increased use of steel scrap in steel production is the means of choice for reducing CO₂ emissions, as recycling saves an average of 1.67 t of CO₂ compared with production from iron ore via the blast furnace route.
