4. Waste heat energy
Reducing energy consumption is the key to reducing the overall total energy consumption, and the waste heat reuse of waste gas is an effective means to reduce energy consumption. With the emergence of various furnace types such as shaft furnaces, Consteel furnaces, double furnace shells, CONARC furnaces, ECOARC furnaces, etc., many technical problems have emerged, and the resolution of the problems has also promoted the development of electric arc furnace steelmaking technology.
5. Environmental friendly
The common environmental protection measures for electric arc furnace steelmaking include electric arc furnace dust removal and reuse, three-stage dust removal and reuse, and slag reuse. In order to control the emission of smoke and dust, the smelting process is carried out in a completely closed manner, and at the same time, targeted measures are taken to control it, such as the use of ECOARC furnaces to reduce the emission of smoke and dust.
In general, the characteristics of broadening, rationalization, diversification, energy saving, and sustainable development have emerged, and the development prospects are broader.
