Steel industry consumes large energy every year and the high levels of power requirement and rising energy costs become a major challenge for the steel industry. While the free by-product gas like coke gas, blast furnace gas during its production process can serve as the fuel source for efficient power generation. The coke gas or blast furnace gas boilers not only bring economic benefit, also reduce industrial CO2 emission.
gas power plant boiler in steel industry
Coke gas is a by-product of industrial coke production from pit coal, coke gas is created by high-temperature dry distillation of coking coals in the absence of oxygen. The gas mainly consists of hydrogen (50-60%), methane (15-50%) and a small percentage of carbon monoxide, carbon and nitrogen. With a calorific value of 5kWh/Nm3, coke gas constitutes a high-value fuel for effective power generation.
Blast furnace gas
Blast furnace gas is a by-product of blast furnaces where iron ore is reduced with coke into metallic iron. The gas has a very low heating value of around 0.9kWh/Nm3, which on its own is typically not high enough for combustion in a gas engine. There is the possibility to blend this gas with other off gases.
