HREII DEMO Project has arrived in Germany

The project HREII DEMO crosses national borders, making its first heat recovery from EAF (Electric Arc Furnace) in the steel industry.
The Feralpi Group, a leading steel producer in Europe, installs a prototype heat recovery system incorporating an ORC unit in its German plant ESF in Riesa.
The heat recovery system will be installed in the fumes purification mechanism of the smelting electric furnace, and it will be fed with water vapor produced by the fumes of the process. The energy generated will reduce the consumption of plant, contributing to the reduction of global emissions of greenhouse gases.
In addition to the electricity production of 3 MW ORC unit, is steam which is fed into the Riesa Municipal steam supply system and will be used by the production process of the nearby Goodyear plant.
The planned start-up date is within the first half of 2013.
