Sustainable production of metal powder with biocoal

Publicerad: 25 februari 2019

Background/Motivation:
- Strong needs to replace fossil based reduction materials in sponge iron processes with biomass-based one.
- The challenges are on differences in various properties of biocarbon with fossil coal, and the price

Research objectives:
- To develop the specification for biocarbon for Höganäs process
- To suggest the optimized biocarbon production system
- To develop a strategy to introduce biocarbon in Höganäs process with the help of numerical simulation

Funding: Swedish Energy Agency, Höganäs (5,2M SEK)
Partners: LTU, Höganäs AB
Duration: 2019-2022
