Project

Decarbonisation of carbon-intensive industries (Iron and Steel Industries) through Power to gas and Oxy-fuel combustion

Goal: (1) To design, simulate and optimize the integrated layout of the novel proposed concept, which combines Power to Gas with iron/steel industries operating in oxy-fuel combustion regime.

(2) To assess the maximum feasible CO2 abatement under advanced control strategies adapted to the requirements of the iron/steel industry and the availability of the renewable energy resource.

(3) To compare the proposed concept with iron/steel industries operating with conventional CCS (amine carbon capture and underground storage), under life-cycle analysis and economic assessment.

In this paper we present the first systematic review of Power to X processes applied to the iron and steel industry. These processes convert renewable electricity into valuable chemicals through an electrolysis stage that produces the final product or a necessary intermediate. We have classified them in five categories (Power to Iron, Power to Hydrogen, Power to Syngas, Power to Methane and Power to Methanol) to compare the results of the different studies published so far, gathering specific energy consumption, electrolysis power capacity, CO2 emissions, and technology readiness level. We also present, for the first time, novel concepts that integrate oxy-fuel ironmaking and Power to Gas. Lastly, we round the review off with a summary of the most important research projects on the topic, including relevant data on the largest pilot facilities (2–6 MW).
