About Lab.

Nowadays, in the steel industry, the most important spoken key word is “environmental protection”. EML focuses on the development of innovative ironmaking processes to meet the demand of the current environmental issues worldwide, and apply them on the steel industry. Replacing the actual use of fossil fuels with hydrogen is the main target of Environmental Metallurgy Laboratory (EML), mostly effective way to achieve the carbon neutralization (ZERO emission of CO2). Inside the research of innovative ironmaking processes, the usage of low-grade ores, biomass and recycling by-products is also being investigated in EML. Currently, the generation of waste during the steelmaking process is increasing. Most of the slags and sludges contain valuable metals, such as Nickel, Cobalt, Lithium, Chromium, Zinc, etc. Therefore, the recovery of such elements from waste became necessary for further use in several areas.
