Primetals receives first order for SWGR in China

Shandong Iron & Steel Corporation Limited (Shansteel), Chinese steel producer has recently ordered a selective waste gas recirculation (SWGR) system from Primetals Technologies for its new sinter plant in Rizhao, Shandong Province. It is the first order for Primetals Technologies from mainland China for this well proven environmental solution. The startup of phase 1 of the new sinter plant is scheduled for September 2017.


Shansteel produces and sells steel products, such as plates, hot-rolled coils, cold-rolled coils, H sections, high-quality steel, special steel, hot rolled ribbed bars, etc. The company is headquartered in Jinan City, Shandong Province. Shansteel ordered the SWGR for its new Rizhao based plant, which will produce mainly products for modern automotive companies.

The new sinter plant will consist of two 550 m² sinter strands which will be installed in two construction phases. By using the SWGR technology, Shansteel will not only reduce the waste gas emission to the atmosphere and the CO2 footprint of the overall plant by reduction of coke consumption, but will also be able to significantly reduce the capital expenditures (CAPEX) for the downstream gas cleaning facilities which can be designed for smaller waste gas capacities.
