2015-12-25 Ukraine: Development of Technology and Creation of Production Complex for Utilization of the Zinc-Iron-Containing Sludge and Sludge of Coke Production


Development of Technology and Creation of Production Complex for Utilization of the Zinc-Iron-Containing Sludge and Sludge of Coke Production

Description of the project offered: 
Topic: SC5-13-2016-2017 New solutions for sustainable production of raw materials

Existing modern technologies allow from raw materials to get zinc concentrate with a zinc content of 32 – 62.5%.
In the production of iron and steel in dry and wet gas cleaning of metallurgical units is captured a large number of zinc-iron-containing dusts and sludge. 
Today, every major steel plant, including the countries of Europe, has a slurry tank with a volume of 2-6 million tons, in which the zinc content reaches 1.2 – 15.8 percent, and the content of iron - 45-58%.
In basic metallurgical processes it is very difficult to dispose the iron dust and sludge of gas cleaning due to the high content of zinc. While zinc compounds are lost irretrievably.
The project proposes to implement low-waste technology for recycling of dusts and sludge gas cleaning of metallurgical production based on pyrometallurgical recovery of zinc compounds carbon with a parallel reduction of iron (Waelz process) for obtaining two marketable products:
- high-grade zinc concentrate with a concentration of zinc up to 78 %, which is 10-15% higher than the zinc content at the best standard concentrate;
- partially metallized pellets with iron content of more than 57 % and a zinc content of 0.06% .
Technology, tested in industrial conditions, proposes to extract iron and zinc from prepared pellets consisting of a mixture of dusts and sludge. This technology has patents.
The results of the developed technology can be realized through the establishment of industrial recycling complexes with a total capacity of over 200 thousand tons/year.
The development of this project besides the obvious economic feasibility and possibilities of duplication, will contribute actively to solving environmental problems, and also will lead to the creation of new jobs in the industrial regions.
