Cut costs and boost efficiency in the steel industry
Energy constitutes a significant portion of the cost of steel production, up to 40% in many countries. Improvements in energy efficiency result in reduced production costs and improved competitiveness.
World crude steel production reached 1,621 million tonnes (Mt) in 2015. By 2050, steel use is projected to increase by 1.5 times that of present levels, to meet the needs of our growing population.
Ideal for process industries, where steam is available in large quantities the Heliex system can be used to:
- Generate a low cost supply of electricity
- Drive a piece of equipment
- Re-energise low pressure steam
- Power an air compressor
