Green Development

Since its establishment, the group has been upholding the philosophy of "human being and steel harmoniously coexist", and actively promoted “green” leading strategy, invested about 16.5 billion RMB to implement more than 430 projects of energy conservation and emissions reduction. Through elimination of backward production capacity, application of advanced technologies, and strengthening environmental management, the major energy and environmental indicators have reached domestic first-class even leading level. The Group took the lead in the country to have achieved a full coverage of the sintering machine desulfurization facilities and sinter flue gas bypass all removed, was named “a successful example in creating clean production and green development for the iron and steel enterprises " by China Steel Association; its core enterprise is praised as “the world's cleanest steel plant” in the industry, held up as “resource-saving and environment-friendly business model” by the Ministry of industry and information technology, determined as the first batch of enterprises for Comprehensive Utilization of Resources “double hundred project” by the National Development and Reform Commission. Strategic positioning at “on behalf of the national industry to assume part of national responsibility”, the group strives to build into a resource-saving and environment-friendly model for the industry, make effort to be the leader of green development.


Ecological priority Green Development

We expand the input in R&D and upgrading of green technology so as to mitigate the environmental pollution and forge the world’s leading steel production technology that is energy conserving, clean and safe.

Outlook

By the end of 2020, core enterprise first to become the global green development demonstration plant with high efficiency, less consumption, low emissions, beautiful environment. Reaching the leading level of energy efficiency and energy fine management. The main pollutant emissions targets of per ton steel will reach the world advanced level.

Green Steel

High Efficiency Energy Saving

High Efficiency Energy Saving

The group actively promotes "energy cost management" to achieve energy dynamic monitoring and control and digital management. CDQ, sintering waste heat power generation, TRT, converter negative energy steel making, regenerative reheating furnace, CCPP , high temperature and super-high pressure power generation and other advanced energy-saving technologies have been applied by the group to efficiently use of energy. In 2016, the comprehensive energy consumption per ton steel was 604.86kgce; fresh water per ton was 2.45 m3; gas recovery per ton was 117.6 m3; self-generating  per ton was 230Kwh.The proportion of electricity generated by the core enterprises reached 50%. At present, the comprehensive energy consumption per ton steel and fresh water per ton index lies in advanced stage of domestic industry.


Environmental Protection

Environmental Protection

The group strictly implements national policies about elimination of backward production capacity and environmental protection. On the basis of elimination of ironmaking productivity 5.6 million tons and steelmaking productivity 6.84 million tons; the group further strengthens responsibility as a large state-owned enterprise, offers to cultivate ironmaking productivity 2.6 million tons and steelmaking productivity 5.02 million tons again during 2-16-2017. By strengthening environmental management, environmental technology upgrading and actively promoting pollution control key projects, such as the advanced water treatment technology and integrated process of desulfurization, denitrification and dioxin removal in waste water process, its pollutant emissions were significantly lowered. SO₂ emissions decreased by 12.24% and smoke and dust emissions decreased by 20.67% in 2016. 


Resource Comprehensive Utilization

Resource Comprehensive Utilization

Ecological theory is brought into the group; through recycling and industrial chain extending, establishing and improving a harmless, products decreased, recycling technology line, clean, efficient and sustainable development comes true. Resources utilization rate has been raised significantly by the application of some advanced technologies such as blast furnace slag fiber-forming used for warm-keeping products, the underground backfill mining. The group makes LNG with coke oven gas, ethanol with converter gas ; the level of clean and efficient use of by-products is rising.
