TOTeM23 is concerned with “Efficiency and Flexibility of Energy Use in the Iron and Steel Industry – Minimise Costs and CO2 emissions”.

A major consideration for integrated works is to increase the efficiency of existing reheating furnaces, for example through the application of modern regenerative systems based on flameless combustion.

The session on this topic – “Modern Applications for Regenerative Combustion with Minimum Environmental Impact” will be opened by John Newby of the North American Manufacturing Company who will describe Experience in the USA. A view from Germany will be described by Joachim Wünning of WS Inc with a further presentation entitled “Pebble Heater, a new development in regenerator technology for hot blast production” given by Jacques Dugué of the Air Liquide Technology Division.

These presentations will set the scene for the following day’s TOTeM24 Keynote Presentation on ”The Development of High Temperature Air Combustion in the field of regenerative combustion with minimum environmental impact” given by Toshiaki Hasegawa, Managing Director, Division Manager Combustion Equipment Division,Nippon Furnace KK – NFK, Japan.
