Kick-off-Meeting for „Minimise sinter degradation between sinter plant and blast furnace exploiting embedded real-time analytics“ (MinSiDeg)in Linz

The kick-off-meeting for the RFCS-project “„Minimise sinter degradation between sinter plant and blast furnace exploiting embedded real-time analytics“ (MinSiDeg) took place on 29th and 30th of October 2019 in Linz. Further project partners besides the coordinator BFI are thyssenkrupp Steel Europe, DK Recycling und Roheisen, voestalpine Stahl Donawitz, K1-MET und Montanuniversität Leoben. Major objective of the project MinSiDeg from the economic and ecologic point of view is to decrease significantly costs and environmental impact at sinter plants and blast furnaces. From the technical point of view, major objective is to optimise the sinter quality along the production chain improving both, sinter plant and blast furnace working. The project is funded by the Research Fund for Coal and Steel of the European Union (RFCS-Grant Agreement No. 847285).
