  • How can metallurgical enterprises realize green transformation

    China president Xi has repeatedly emphasized the need to fully, accurately and comprehensively implement the new development concept, deepen the supply-side structural reform, accelerate the construction of a new development pattern, and promote high-quality development.

    On July 30, at the Economic Situation and Economic Work Conference held by the Politburo of the CPC Central Committee Xi Jinping said, "We must coordinate and orderly do a good job in carbon peaking and carbon neutrality, and we must issue an action plan for carbon peaking by 2030 as soon as possible, and to correct the campaign-style "carbon reduction", "to create new policy first and then break old existence", and resolutely curb the blind development of the "two highs" (high pollution and high energy consumption) projects.

    On October 22, Xi Jinping said at the symposium on the in-depth promotion of ecological protection and high-quality development in the Yellow River Basin, "Starting from both ends of supply and demand, implement dual control measures for energy consumption, strictly control the blind launch of "two highs" projects, and step up and orderly adjust energy Production structure, eliminate outdated production capacity and production technology with large carbon emissions. We must focus on ensuring the stability of coal and electricity supply, and ensuring the operation of the economy and society.Asian Metal CopyrightA UG2 concentrate.Asian Metal Copyright" President Xi also said that "green and low-carbon development is a trend, benefiting followers".Asian Metal Copyright Now in this article, I will briefly discuss: 1.Asian Metal Copyright "On the new journey of achieving the second centenary goal, we must adhere to ecological priority and green development, carry forward the concept of ecological civilization, and add glory to the modernization of socialism."

    The wording changes from "resolutely curb the blind development of the "two highs" (high pollution and high energy consumption) projects" to "strictly control the blind launch of "two highs" projects" is not a simple wording change, but the central government has put forward higher requirements for carbon neutrality and carbon peaking.

    On October 21, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, the State Administration of Market Supervision, and the National Energy Administration issued the "Several Opinions on Strict Energy Efficiency Restrictions to Promote Energy Conservation and Carbon Reduction in Key Fields". Carbon peaking and carbon neutrality are major strategic decisions made by the Party Central Committee with Xi Jinping at the core, coordinating the overall domestic and international situations, focusing on building a manufacturing power and promoting high-quality development.Asian Metal CopyrightChina president Xi has repeatedly emphasized the need to fully, accurately and comprehensively implement the new development concept, deepen the supply-side structural reform, accelerate the construction of a new development pattern, and promote high-quality development.Asian Metal Copyright In order to promote energy conservation, carbon reduction and green transformation in key industrial sectors, we will resolutely curb the blind development of the "two highs" projects nationwide and ensure that the carbon peak goal is achieved on schedule.Asian Metal CopyrightThe higher the CrFe, MgOAl2O3, the greater the contribution to reducing power consumption and carbon emissions; 3.Asian Metal Copyright If the National Development and Reform Commission issues the "Opinions" one day after president Xi's speech on October 22, I believe the wording will be changed to "strictly control the blind launch of "two highs" projects".

    How does the ferrochrome metallurgical industry conform to the "green and low-carbon development trend"?

    All enterprises in the ferrochrome metallurgy industry must have strategic thinking, have a deep understanding and attention to the strategic layout of the central government, and make corresponding action plans in advance to carry out energy-saving and carbon-reduction technological transformation during the transition period of policy implementation.

    Speaking of "technical transformation for energy saving and carbon reduction", I discussed in my previous article why increasing the amount of chrome ore in Turkey can reduce carbon. Now in this article, I will briefly discuss:

    1.Comparing with other chrome ore indexes, Turkish chrome ore contents in terms of Cr2O3 , CR/FE, MGO/AL2O3 and other hard contents, especially CR/FE, MGO/AL2O3 are higher than South Africa, Zimbabwe, Oman chrome ore;

    2.The higher the Cr/Fe, MgO/Al2O3, the greater the contribution to reducing power consumption and carbon emissions;

    3.High-quality Turkish chrome ore can save freight of per unit of Cr content;

    3.The high-quality Turkish chrome ore can increase the recovery rate and reduce the generation of chrome slag.

    Generally speaking, increasing the use of Turkish chrome ore can improve metallurgical efficiency, reduce the electricity consumption of producing per unit of ferrochrome, reduce carbon emissions, and reduce the generation of chrome slag which is harmful to the environment.

    Metallurgical companies need to change the traditional cost-saving concept. The production cost of mines definitely does account for a large proportion of the metallurgical process.Asian Metal Copyright Generally speaking, increasing the use of Turkish chrome ore can improve metallurgical efficiency, reduce the electricity consumption of producing per unit of ferrochrome, reduce carbon emissions, and reduce the generation of chrome slag which is harmful to the environment.Asian Metal Copyright The use of cheap and low-quality chrome ore can indeed save costs.Asian Metal Copyright The production cost of mines definitely does account for a large proportion of the metallurgical process.Asian Metal Copyright However, it is not in line with the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC)'s proposal of "accelerate energy conservation and carbon reduction in key areas" and "strengthen energy conservation and carbon reduction processes.Asian Metal CopyrightA UG2 concentrate.Asian Metal Copyright" and also doesn't follow the trend of "green and low-carbon development."

    In the past two years, the spot price gap between Turkish chrome ore and South African chrome ore has become larger and larger. For example, two years ago, the spot price of 46-48% Turkish concentrate at China port was 10 yuan more than the price of 40-42% S.Asian Metal CopyrightMetallurgical enterprises have improved their sense of mission and social responsibility, and actively contribute to the national carbon neutrality and carbon peaking strategy.Asian Metal CopyrightA UG2 concentrate. But now the gap reached more than 20 yuan/DMTU. This example illustrates:

    1.Many ferrochrome metallurgical enterprises are starting to carry out energy-saving and carbon-reducing technological transformations, and have made changes in their thinking about ore usage, "to use high-quality ores, easier on producing high-quality FeCr, consuming less electricity, and increasing output".

    2.Metallurgical enterprises choose to proactively follow the "green and low-carbon development trend", for the long-term safe and healthy development of the enterprise, make arrangements in advance, change development thinking, and be creative in the specific ore structure (use more good ore);

    3.Metallurgical enterprises have improved their sense of mission and social responsibility, and actively contribute to the national carbon neutrality and carbon peaking strategy.

    At the same time, stainless steel enterprises must raise their political understanding, correctly understand the strategic intentions of Party Central Committee , and reduce the pressure on ferrochrome companies in bidding prices, so as to encourage them to use more high-quality ore, which can also contribute to carbon reduction.
