World’s leading technology provider SMS group will improve the efficiency of Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works processes with the use of syngas, a combination of hydrogen and carbon monoxide which replaces a portion of the solid carbon fuels, setting the stage for greater decarbonization potential in the future. Blast Furnace 11 was ordered in June 2021 and is to be a completely new project. It will use enhanced techniques, developed by SMS group company Paul Wurth. It will achieve very high standards of environmental performance. These new technologies can also be used in existing Blast Furnaces, thus enabling CO2 emissions to be reduced at existing sites around the world.SMS contribution to these projects is the production technology and workflow for the use of syngas. The degree of emissions reduction possible from this technique is potentially substantial. The system is flexible, allowing for a general increase in productivity”.
