STEELMAKERS ARE SEEKING EFFICIENCIES
to better manage, reduce and control emissions released during the steel during the steel making process.
THE USE OF MAGNETITE IN THE PLACE OF HEMATITE AND GOETHITE/
can reduce the steel making emissions intensity as 30% during the overall steel making process.
HIGH GRADE MAGNETITE CONCENTRATES
contain very low levels of impurities such as silica, phosphorus, alumina and Sulphur. This means that during the steel making process less energy is required for blast furnaces to "slag off" the impurities thereby reducing unwanted emissions and waste products.
MAGNETITE CONCENTRATE PRODUCES MORE STEEL FOR EACH TONNE USED.
This creates the added benefit of reducing steel making costs through lower energy requirements and raw material inputs (such as coking coal).
THE USE OF MAGNETITE CONCENTRATE
for steel making in sinter feed blends and pellet feed is widespread and growing.
(not just China) are available to magnetite concentrate producers.
