Presentation Synopsis:

Supporting more sustainable electric arc furnace steel production with ABB technologies

As the metals industry moves towards decarbonization, steelmakers are looking to minimize the environmental impact of the energy and resource-intense electric arc furnace process (EAF). Since process conditions in EAF are far optimal in their natural state, innovative technology solutions have a valuable role to play in reducing energy consumption and carbon footprints, improving power flow and arc stability, increasing process reliability, uptime and productivity and extending the lifetime of related equipment. Attend the ABB presentation to find out how the ground-breaking VD4-AF1 circuit breaker and the unique ArcSave® electromagnetic stirrer can support your EAF efficiency goals.
