From Interdisciplinary Research to start-up LUXMET
The interdisciplinary research program bringing together research institutions and companies resulted in a technological breakthrough and the establishment of a new start-up company focusing on online measurement of metallurgical processes.
FINAL REPORT: ELEMET ” Energy- and Lifecycle-efficient Metal Processes”
Energy- and Lifecycle-efficient Metal Processes – ELEMET (2009-2014) is one of the first generation FIMECC programmes. The main focus of the programme was to improve the material and energy efficiency of metal production plants. The final report illustrates the research results and impact of the FIMECC ELEMET programme.
Material efficient blast furnace
Material efficiency of iron making was improved by the project dramatically and the usage of virgin raw material was decreased significantly. The achieved result improve the cost efficiency and sustainability of steel production.
Advanced steelmaking through digitalisation of physical phenomena
Digital models revolutionizes steel developing. By simulators you can see virtually inside the steel making process. This allows you to watch the steel making process, test different parameters and practices and predict the exact grade of steel. The steel converter simulator saves time and money by accelerating time to market, decreasing slag and carbon dioxide emissions,...
Seeing inside of steel - Improving steelmaking with new simulators
Novel comprehensive simulators developed take steel design to new digital era. This means improved quality, increased productivity, cost efficiency and yield. Simulators also able new steel grade development decreasing time to market and and reducing the need for production trials with significant carbon dioxide emissions.
