Benefits

  • Low CAPEX – compact unit, small off-gas volumes due to continuous operation, small buildings and foundations
  • Low OPEX due to less energy requirement and high metals recovery rate
  • Flexible smelting (can operate from 40-100% capacity with various input mixtures with high organic fractions)
  • Flexible sealed charging systems for different input materials by injection and conveyer systems
  • CO2 neutral process (H2-ready option)
  • Low NOx emissions due to low false air ingress and reducing atmosphere
  • Controlled post-combustion outside the metallurgical vessel
  • Low maintenance SIS /injector maintaining stable temperature during reduction
  • Continuous operation (e.g. tap to tap 2-4 h)
