MMK to Modernize Coke Oven Battery No 12
Russian steel maker MMK is planned to build a coke oven battery No 12 with a production volume of gross dry coke up to 2.5 million tonnes per year. The design documentation, which received a positive conclusion from the Glavgosexpertiza of Russia, provides for the construction of a complex of coke oven battery No 12 in two stages. At the first, it is planned to build two blocks of a coke oven battery with two dry coke quenching units, one desulfurization and denitration unit. At the first stage, a coal preparation shop, a liquid ammonia warehouse, coke sorting facilities, an air compressor station, a fire pumping station and engineering facilities for coke oven battery No 12 will also be built. Its capacity under autonomous operation will amount to 1.25 million tonnes of coke per year. At the second stage, two more blocks of a coke oven battery with technological units will be built. The increase in production during the commissioning of the second stage will amount to 1.25 million tonnes of coke per year.
Coke oven battery No. 12 with a capacity of 2.5 million tons of dry coke per year will enable MMK to disable five morally and physically obsolete batteries, reduce gross emissions by 11,350 tonnes per year, benzopyrene and formaldehyde by 9-12 times. The cost of this project is about 60 billion rubles
