ECIC 2024 – 9th European Coke and Ironmaking Congress
COAL, COKE, BIOCOAL, BIOCOKE, BIOCHAR AND IRON REDUCTIONS
ECIC 2024 will focus on the newest technologies in coke making, sintering, pelletizing, pyrolizing the biomasses and ironmaking (blast furnaces, direct reduction and carbon-based smelting processes).
The 2050 goal of carbon neutrality and the related intensive efforts of the steel industry will significantly affect the technologies for iron ore reduction. In this perspective, the shortage of iron ores matching the requirement for direct reduction by gas and for melting in electric arc furnace makes important proposal of new technologies and devices that can ensure the carbon neutrality even for the coal based routes.
This Congress will focus on technologies that can achieve such a goal improving the efficiency of the existing process, applying the devices that avoid a net emission of green house gases and to point out new routes based on exploitation of biomasses whose net emission is intrinsically neutral.
The 9th ECIC will address both fundamental research work and evaluation and plant operational results and plant construction.
The Conference will bring together a wide range of experts, coming from plant operation, plant suppliers, universities and research institutes, who share expertise in:
• Production of Biocoal/biochar
• Industry 4.0 in ironmaking
• Sintering, pelletising, briquette production
• Direct reduction and Smelting reduction
• Blast furnace ironmaking
