The Consteel® Evolution catch on in China

A new accomplishment for Tenova in China, recently awarded a new contract for 2 EAF Consteel® Evolution by Hezhou City Zhaoxin Metallic Products Co., LTD, in Guangxi, China.

The success of our solutions for EAF knows no respite as we have been recently awarded a new contract for 2 EAF (Electric Arc Furnace) Consteel® Evolution by Hezhou City Zhaoxin Metallic Products Co., LTD, in Guangxi, China. Relying on the great experience and reputation by projects accomplishment in China, Tenova was chosen by the Chinese company as a reliable partner for the construction of its melt shop. This contract represent the 15th and 16th state-of-the-art EAF Consteel® Evolution project in the last eighteen months for Tenova in China.

Consteel® system is the only fully tested industrial EAF process in operation today that continuously pre-heats and feeds metallic charge to the EAF, while simultaneously controlling gaseous emissions. The latest Consteel® Evolution integrates the expertise and know-how gained over the years to modify the flow of fumes and to increase the volume and efficiency of the chemical energy used in the process. The results are improving pre-heating and minimizing the dioxin emission.

“Thanks to our experience in Consteel®, dating back to the first installation about 30 years ago and our continuous innovation, Tenova's Consteel® system is the most environmental-friendly solution in the steel making process” explained Mario Marcozzi, Sales Director in Tenova Metals.  “Especially in China, where the government is supporting the shift from BF-BOF (integral steelmaking) plants towards EAF technology, steelmakers choose Tenova for its reliability and its support from the first phase of the project till the start-up and training”.
