Hou Angui: Play a guiding role to promote the continuous improvement of energy efficiency in the steel industry

“China Baowu is well aware of the arduousness of the three-year action task of energy efficiency benchmarking in the iron and steel industry. It requires us to make arduous efforts and bold innovations. We are willing to work with the vast number of iron and steel peers and scientific research institutes to further gather industry consensus. Under the guidance of various national ministries and commissions and steel associations, sincerely cooperate and actively explore, and strive to create a “dual carbon best practice energy efficiency benchmarking demonstration plant”. High-quality development.” On December 9, Hou Angui, deputy general manager of China Baowu and member of the Standing Committee of the Party Committee, said at the on-site launch meeting of the three-year action plan for energy efficiency benchmarking in the steel industry.

He said that promoting the ultimate energy efficiency improvement of key iron and steel processes is not only a key step for enterprises to save energy and reduce emissions, but also an internal demand for the industry to achieve transformation and upgrading and high-quality development. The timely organization and holding of this kick-off meeting by the China Iron and Steel Industry Association has important guiding significance for Chinese iron and steel enterprises to maintain their comprehensive competitiveness and lead the development of the world economy.

Hou Angui introduced the series of achievements China Baowu has made in improving energy efficiency. He said that in the process of green and low-carbon transformation practice, China Baowu has promoted the recycling of waste heat and waste energy in the whole process and the improvement of process interface energy efficiency as key tasks, focusing on the deep recycling of low-temperature waste heat resources and the extreme recovery of by-product gas. Common technical problems such as energy utilization and recycling, challenge the ultimate energy efficiency, and realize the recovery of waste heat and energy. “This year, China Baowu focuses on establishing an energy efficiency technology system and carrying out scientific and technological research. Compared with 2021, the temperature at the iron-steel interface will drop by 15 degrees Celsius, the average tapping temperature at the steel-casting interface will drop sharply, and the average hot delivery ratio will increase by 10%. The tapping temperature has been increased by 50 degrees Celsius. Through the overall optimization of the air interface temperature, we have reduced carbon dioxide emissions by more than 1.5 million tons.” He explained with data.

According to reports, in order to further implement the requirements of the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and other ministries and commissions on energy efficiency constraints, China Baowu has also actively carried out the creation of energy efficiency benchmarks for key processes in iron and steel enterprises. , Organize all units to formulate action plans for energy efficiency benchmarking, decompose tasks to production lines, refine measures to bases, and formulate specific measures by process.

Hou Angui said that in the early stage, China Baowu Research has formed a green development index with its own characteristics, which is used to evaluate and measure the status quo and comprehensive performance of green and low-carbon development of various bases, and based on this index system, comprehensive benchmarking inspections and guidance All iron and steel enterprises actively implement the green and low-carbon development strategy.

“Under the guidance of the Iron and Steel Association, the research results of this indicator system have formed a group standard, and it has been used as one of the important references for central enterprises to select ‘clean production and environment-friendly enterprises’.” The system has been revised and improved, adding carbon emission reduction related evaluation index data, increasing the weight of carbon emission reduction index evaluation, further focusing on the two dimensions of low-carbon development and green development, making the evaluation index system more operable, and the evaluation results More objective and scientific.”
