Environmental and economic analysis to evaluate the valorization process of metallurgical waste and by-products
June 5 – 10, 2022
Energy and resource efficiency are today key elements for the European industry. More specifically, the metallurgical industry is energy and resource-intensive, mostly located in big centralized plants, and it is today responsable for a large number of carbon emissions. While a big plant allows for stability in productivity, it also makes the process less adaptable towards innovative units/systems developed for more efficient use of energy and resources. Therefore, the future decarbonization targets might not be met without the development of new flexible and innovative technologies and strategies.
