HiTecHeat Project

HYbrid TEChnologies for sustainable steel reHEATing

The general objective of this project is to exploit the hybrid heating technologies by evaluating the effects of the steel products, on the refractories and on the combustion systems. Three Demo cases testing innovative multifuel burner and testing the limit of current systems at TRL 7 will facilitate the hydrogen transition of the steel sector. Achieved results will bring to a CO2 saving in the range 7.5-25 Mt/year. Regarding the steel quality, the project activities will individuate the optimum processing parameters to ensure that primary scale and associated scale defects do not persist through to the final product.
