Missouri S&T researcher earns $4 million grant for energy-efficient steelmaking

Posted by on August 19, 2020

Steelmaking is among the most energy- and carbon-dioxide-intensive process in manufacturing. U.S. steel producers are challenged by narrow profit margins due to the cost of raw materials and associated energy costs. But researchers at Missouri S&T could soon help the steel industry overcome those challenges.

Researchers awarded $2.2 million grant to develop sensors for steelmaking

Posted by on March 13, 2020

Steelmaking involves the handling of corrosive metal and oxide fluids at extremely high temperatures – about 1,600 degrees Celsius, which is several hundred degrees hotter than fresh lava from Mount Kilauea in Hawaii. Measuring the temperature, chemistry and fluid flow of molten steel under these conditions in real time is important to enable rapid responses to the changes in the steel during its production, according to researchers. The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded Missouri S&T part of a $2.2 million grant to develop new, more efficient ways to measure temperature, flow and chemistry during steelmaking to cut costs and improve worker safety.
