Tenova, Danieli, NSENGI form strategic alliance

Tenova HYL and Danieli & C. have entered into an agreement with Nippon Steel & Sumikin Engineering (NSENGI) to combine and commercialise their Energiron DR technology with an optimised blast furnace technology and the high-efficiency coal gasification and steelworks by-product gas utilisation technology, or syngas technology, developed and owned by NSENGI.
 
The two key areas of combined expertise involve the integration of the Energiron Direct Reduction technology with the blast furnace as well as the areas of interface between existing and future syngas technologies with the Energiron process. The charging of specialised DRI to the blast furnace, produced by Energiron with high carbon content and adjusted reduction ratio, will target a significant decrease in the blast furnace production cost in comparison to the conventional DRI charging to the blast furnace method.
 
This new alliance will allow the three parties to combine research and development activities with their respective expertise in Energiron DR, blast furnace and syngas technologies, with the ultimate objective of developing a new iron making technology which will reduce CO2 emissions and operating costs, while increasing productivity and decreasing capital expenditures for integrated steelmaking facilities.

The alliance also provides for the joint marketing of existing direct reduction technology to blast furnace customers.
