Energy and Environmental

NETC is the first metallurgical engineering contractor paying close attention to the development and application of energy-saving and environment protection technologies. Now NETC has successfully developed new technologies and processes regarding energy-saving and environment protection in various metallurgical industries involving sintering flue gas circulation, comprehensive flue gas treatment technique with active coke, high-efficient recovery and utilization of sintering circular cooler waste heat, multifunctional high-efficient circular cooler, integrated and environmental friendly screening system, sintering optimization system and high-efficient sintering dust removal and is capable of providing professional, high-efficient and customized services of energy conservation and emission reduction for iron and steel enterprises.

Comprehensive Treatment of Solid,Liquid,Gas

Flue Gas Circulation Technology

Sintering flue gas circulation technology is developed based on the principle that the partial hot gas is introduced into sintering process again, which is environment friendly sintering technology. This technology can reduce the external emission of sintering gas by 20%~50% depending on the different conditions, which can bring benefit from the two aspects, i.e., the energy saving and emission reduction.

1.450㎡ New Technology Sintering Machine Project of Ningbo Iron & Steel Co., Ltd of Hangzhou Iron & Steel Group Company

It’s the first project that applied flue gas circulation technology to newly built sintering machine in China. This project went into operation in May, 2013 and it was NETC that provided the complete solution of core processes for the project.


2.Technology Upgrading and Renovation Project of No.3, No.4, No.5 Sintering Machine of Shagang Group

The technical innovation project of No.3 sintering machine of Shagang Group was the first project in China that adopted flue gas circulating technology for upgrading and renovation. This project was completed in December 2013 and its emission reduction effect is significant. During 2014 to 2015, No.4 and No.5 sintering machine were rebuilt and put into operation in succession, thus making the flue gas circulating technology more mature and market acceptance increase greatly. It was NETC that provided the complete scheme of core technology of the project.


Comprehensive flue gas treatment technique with active coke

Comprehensive flue gas treatment technique with active coke takes coal based active coke as absorbent to absorb SO? in the removed flue gas. After absorption is completed, the active coke will be regenerated by means of heating method, the high concentration SO? mixed gas after desorption can directly prepare 98% commercial sulfuric acid to realize sulfur resource recovery. At the same time, catalytic function of active coke can be utilized to reduce the NOx in the flue gas into N? and water after appropriate amount of ammonia is added. The denitration efficiency can reach 50%. Besides, the adoption of this technology has better effect for removal of heavy metal, dioxin of flue gas. During the process of purification, no waste water and waste residue are generated, which is the advanced flue gas purification technology to thoroughly solve environmental protection issue of iron and steel industry.


1.Active Coke Flue Gas Purification Project of450 m2Sintering Machine of Lianfeng Iron & Steel Limited Company of Yonggang Group

It’s the first wholly homemade active coke purification device for sintering flue gas in China with complete intellectual property rights, which is capable of removing sulphur, nitration, dioxin, heavy metal and dust at a time with desulphurization efficiency reaching above 98%. This device accords with the current environmental requirement and development trend of sintering flue gas purification technology in the future. This project was undertaken by NETC on EPC basis and was completed and went into operation in April 2015.

Besides, this project matches the flue gas circulation system with active coke flue gas purification system, adopting the thought to reduce the amount at first and control at second, which substantially reduce the handled gas flow rate of active coke flue gas purification system, thus saving in capital cost and operation cost.


The third set of sintering machine active gas purification device with coke flue was a EPC Project accomplished by NETC and was put into operation in July 2016, it can yearly reduce 13,500t sulfur dioxide emissions, 450t dust emissions, 1,500t nitrogen oxides emissions, and can produce 21,000t concentrated sulfuric acid.
