On-site power from blast furnace gas for Chinese steel mill

BFG is created during the production of pig iron in steel mills, as a by-product of coke combustion and iron ore melt in blast furnaces. It can, says GE, be recovered and used as fuel in a gas turbine combined-cycle power generation solution with higher efficiency and lower emissions compared to a traditional BFG boiler power generation system, and can generate power to be used both in the plant and sold to the public power grid.

The proposed CHP plant at a new paper mill in the city of Shklov in the Mogilev oblast of Belarus, 300 km east of Minsk, is to include gas-fired generating sets from Finland's Wärtsilä Corporation. The plant is to be owned by the state-owned, forestry-to-wood processing enterprise, Bellesbumprom.
