The hottest Siemens joins hands with langze techno

  • Detail

Siemens and lanze Technology Co., Ltd. cooperate to transform steel waste gas

convert carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide into bioethanol and other basic chemicals through biological fermentation process

this process will utilize the energy contained in steel plant waste gas

the two sides will carry out long-term cooperation for the global steel industry for up to ten years, Jointly committed to the development and marketing of comprehensive environmental protection solutions

Siemens metallurgical technology department and lanzatech signed a ten-year cooperation agreement to jointly commit to the development and marketing of comprehensive environmental protection solutions for the global steel industry. The two sides will work together to convert the carbon rich waste gas generated by the steel plant into low-carbon bioethanol and other basic chemicals by adopting the innovative fermentation technology of langze technology company. Siemens will work with lanze technology company to carry out in-depth cooperation in process integration, process optimization, and the marketing and Realization of customer projects

in 2012, a 300 ton pre commercial demonstration plant using langze technology's microbial gas fermentation technology was successfully verified in Shanghai Baosteel. Siemens and lanze technology will continue to cooperate to further develop and market promotion

the exhaust gas produced in the process of steel production contains a large amount of carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2). 6.7% of global carbon dioxide emissions come from the steel industry. Producing 1 metric ton of steel will emit an average of 1.8 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). At present, the way to deal with these gases is to directly ignite the exhaust gas, or use it to generate the process heat and power required in the factory

the innovative biological fermentation technology provided by langze technology company will use the waste gas generated in the smelting process of steel furnaces, coke ovens or blast furnaces as raw materials or energy. The patented biological fermentation process enables steel mills to use the chemical energy contained in exhaust gases such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and hydrogen to produce more environmentally friendly bioethanol or other basic chemicals, such as acetic acid, acetone, isopropanol, n-butanol or 2,3-butanediol

it is estimated that the global annual output of ethanol alone is more than 80 million metric tons, of which about 75 million metric tons are used as biofuels. Unlike bioethanol produced from agricultural products, the fermentation process provided by langze technology company is not competitive with grain production. This technology also has another significant advantage. The carbon dioxide emission (carbon footprint) generated by this technology is only between 50% and 60%, which is significantly lower than that of oil-based fuel, and is about one third lower than that generated by converting steel plant exhaust gas into electric energy

in 2008, langze technology company established a pilot plant to convert raw steel waste gas in Auckland, New Zealand. In 2012, langze technology company became the first company to expand waste gas fermentation technology to the pre commercial application stage, and successfully developed and operated two sets of conversion equipment to help Baosteel and Shougang convert waste gas into ethanol. The annual production capacity of each equipment reaches 300 tons. Langze technology company plans to build two sets of commercial equipment in China in 2013 and is expected to start production in 2014

Siemens and Lanza technologies have developed several commercial gas fermentation project opportunities worldwide. The two sides will work together to make the gas produced by the steel plant more suitable for langze technology through customized Siemens technology

at present, the world's demand for affordable and sustainable energy is stronger than ever before. Dr. Jennifer Holmgren, CEO of lanze technology, said that the carbon emissions generated by steel mills can become an important new energy and reduce atmospheric emissions. We are very pleased to cooperate with Siemens to provide integrated solutions to the global steel industry to improve industry value and environmental footprint

at present, the steel industry has to deal with the market difficulties it is facing. Today, our customers' main goal is not to create new production records, but to reduce operating costs. Mr. Norbert petermaier, senior vice president of Siemens metallurgical technology, said that at the same time, the government was setting a series of emission reduction targets, especially in carbon dioxide emission reduction. This is why Siemens has always focused on providing solutions to help steel enterprises achieve the above two goals at the same time. Langze technology's unique carbon monoxide/carbon dioxide biological fermentation technology is an excellent opportunity. This technology perfectly conforms to the leading position of the leading company in Siemens' green technology industry, which can meet the needs of power battery enterprises for higher performance materials, and is a leading supplier of color solutions
