Targets of Research and Development

Development of technologies to reduce CO2 emissions from blast furnaces

Develop technologies to control reactions for reducing iron ore with reducing agents such as hydrogen with a view to decreasing coke consumption in blast furnaces.
Develop technologies to reform coke oven gas aiming at amplifying its hydrogen content by utilizing unused waste heat with the temperature of 800 oC generated at coke ovens.
Develop technologies to produce high-strength & high reactivity coke for reduction with hydrogen.

Development of technologies to capture - separate and recover - CO2 from blast furnace gas (BFG)

Develop techniques for chemical absorption and physical adsorption to capture - separate and recover - CO2 from blast furnace gas (BFG).
Develop technologies contributing to reduction in energy for capture - separation and recovery - of CO2 through enhanced utilization of unused waste heat from steel plants.
