NEFI Technology Talk: closing event of the project OxySteel

by Michael Wöss

Within the scope of the NEFI Technology Talks on the 1st of September 2022, the closed project OxySteel was presented in front of guests from industry, research, and politics.

The experts Johannes Dock (Montanuniversität Leoben), Christian Gaber (Messer) and Florian Schneller (Breitenfeld Edelstahl AG) held presentations about the project scope and results, the Oxyfuel Combustion Technology, and the implementation of the innovative process layout in the EAF steel mill.

Following an interesting presentation of the project setup and technologies, the practical implementation was shown within a plant tour.

During a workshop, which was led by Thomas Kienberger and Paul Binderbauer, the guests discussed technologies, implementation and challenges regarding climate-neutral high-temperature processes.

Electricity grid security: Survey on the contribution of industry. Incentives and potentials for the provision of flexibility

by Oxana Schmidt

Industrial companies will have the opportunity to make a major contribution to grid stability in Austria as active participants in the energy system. Flexibilities can be used to economically utilise both surplus and shortfall production of electricity. How this should be designed in the future is being worked out by the consortium of Industry4Redispatch. In particular, the view of the needs and requirements of industrial companies are essential to develop a functioning system and to create incentives for industrial companies.

Net-Zero Industries Mission: Have your say in a short online survey!

by Oxana Schmidt

Energy-intensive industries such as steel, cement and chemicals are responsible for a quarter of global GHG emissions. The potential for CO₂ avoidance is around 60 gigatonnes by 2030, but new technologies and innovations need to be developed until then, because around 2030 the next modernisation cycle is also due in this sector.
