Iron & Steel
In steel production, carbon dioxide is discharged mainly during the reduction process in a blast furnace and the heating and mechanical work in other processes. R&D in hydrogen reduction process is underway. This wil replace cokes with hydrogen and mas, resulting in massive CO2 emission reduction. The energy-saving technology for heat recovery hs been applied and the efficiency of power generation with recovered heat is still advancing. This results in energy conservation for mechanical work that require electricity.

Comments and Discussion
PNNL and industry-partner LanzaTech are working together to convert alcohols derived from captured carbon monoxide(CO), a by-product in the production of steel, into synthetic paraffinic kerosene, a non-fossil-based jet fuel. The team achieved a milestone, producing 5 gallons of jet fuel in the lab, which allows them to scale up the production and move to the next stage of testing. http://energye...
