Carmeuse, along with its injection technology partners, are some of the first lime producers to introduce this technology to EAF steel plants. Through its commitment to quality steel making, Carmeuse has invested capital and personnel to become an industry expert in injection technology.
Carmeuse is uniquely positioned in this field, thanks to a strong reference list, experienced technicians, and an operational lime injection pilot system that is capable of testing and comparing current or potential lime injection materials in multiple configurations, in order to mimic current or potential lime injection systems in EAF.
Carmeuse has developed value in use models to simulate the real effect of lime quality on process efficiency on the steelmaking process. These simulations show how important lime quality is, and the significant effect it has on the steel process efficiency including cost, energy efficiency and steel process CO2 emissions. It has been demonstrated that lime quality has a significant impact on the Scope 1 CO2 emissions of the steelmaking process.
