How to support and guide the orderly development of electric furnace steelmaking?

August 25, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and other seven departments officially released the “iron and steel industry growth program” (hereinafter referred to as “program”), re-emphasized that the steel industry is a basic, pillar-type industries of the national economy, is related to the stable growth of industry, the economy runs smoothly in an important area. At the same time, the “program” put forward, including support for guiding the orderly development of electric furnace steel, including 12 work initiatives, referred to as “steel 12”.

  Currently, the electric furnace steel production accounts for about 10% of China’s crude steel production, according to incomplete statistics, China’s existing electric furnace short process steelmaking enterprises more than 250, of which nearly 200 are all scrap steel electric furnace steelmaking enterprises. With the “industrial field carbon peak implementation program” put forward “to 2025, short flow steelmaking accounted for more than 15%; to 2030, short flow steelmaking accounted for more than 20%” of the target requirements, the provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government) issued one after the other in the “Carbon Peak Implementation Plan Provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the central government) have successively issued the “Carbon Peak Implementation Program”, “Carbon Peak Implementation Program in the Industrial Sector”, “Energy Conservation and Emission Reduction Comprehensive Work Program” and other documents, which also put forward the goal that the proportion of short-flow steelmaking should reach 5% to 20%.

  China’s iron and steel industry, “double carbon” in the second half of the need to rely on the vigorous development of electric furnace steelmaking to achieve carbon neutral after the carbon peak. A large proportion of green electricity all-scrap steel electric furnace steelmaking and hydrogen-based direct reduction of iron with a large proportion of green electricity electric furnace steelmaking is, in a sense, a kind of production of “green steel” synonymous.

  In May this year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment and the Sichuan Provincial Government jointly held in Luzhou City, Sichuan Province, the National Electric Furnace short process steelmaking to promote the General Assembly, to further focus on and implement the “carry out the implementation of the electric furnace short process steelmaking high-quality development of the leading project implementation program”. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and other seven ministries and commissions of the new “program” in support of guiding the orderly development of electric furnace steel, emphasized to speed up the implementation of the electric furnace short process steelmaking high-quality development of leading projects, and once again clear on the implementation of the all-scrap steel electric furnace steelmaking projects to carry out the differentiation of production capacity, environmental protection management and other policies, to create the world’s advanced electric furnace steel industry clusters.
