ISMARTER21VC - SMARTER: SteaM and gAs networks Revamping for the sTeElworks of the futuRe.

01.07.2021 to 31.12.2024

The project aims at providing steel producers with tools and technologies allowing constant improvement of gas and steam networks and associated management practices to reduce the waste of resources and the CO2 emissions and increase the overall efficiency.

Networks revamping are analyzed considering addition of new junctions, new storage possibilities, additional sources but also future evolutions of the steel production processes within a gradual transition toward C-lean processes and technologies.

Such huge revamping requires a re-optimization of the whole network and the re-configuration of aggregates for a full exploitation of the advantages of the performed changes.
