Harnessing innovative technology to reduce emissions in Bosnia
Our global R&D division is exploring new approaches to reduce our emissions reductions further. One example is the new hybrid filtration technology we have developed for the sintering process, using both electrostatic precipitators and bag filters for the first time in an integrated system. Following a pilot at Gijón in Spain, the first industrial-scale demonstration of this innovative technology was initiated in 2016 at our Zenica site in Bosnia & Herzegovina, as part of an ongoing investment programme to modernise the steel plant there. Results from the pilot are expected in 2017, with future applications planned for our steel plants in Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland and Ghent, Belgium.
