Tranter secures an order for DRI

Tranter has recently secured a contract for an advanced direct reduced iron (DRI) green steel plant, slated for construction in Germany. In this groundbreaking project, Tranter’s plate and frame heat exchangers will play a crucial role in capturing and segregating carbon dioxide emissions generated during the energy-intensive steel production process. Specifically, the order entails four large plate and frame heat exchangers crafted from stainless steel, featuring extra hard EPDM gaskets. These components will facilitate heat recovery in the CO2 removal process from gas streams, conducted through continuous absorption with regenerable solvents.

This innovative plant, categorized as a direct reduced iron (DRI) facility, represents a significant departure from conventional steel plants by leveraging green hydrogen as its primary energy source and integrating post-combustion carbon capture technology. This approach is poised to substantially reduce the plant’s carbon footprint compared to traditional steel plants, aligning with the ambitious NetZero objectives for 2030.
