Is it time for a better scrap upgrade and mid-size DR plants to replace old BF plants?

Wednesday 19th June 11:45 - 12:15


When blast furnace integrated plants turn to the EAF process line it may be enough to have smaller DR-plants and a better scrap upgrade to secure the iron supply. The alternative may be to have bigger DR-plants to provide HBI to several plants with less need for scrap upgrade. How will available resources and new local needs affect the design of the plants that will replace old integrated plants.
