HTT is proud to participate in the POLYNSPIRE project, the project is focused on the optimization of recycling processes for plastic containing materials. EU research program Horizon 2020 has awarded a grant worth 10 million euros to this project. In this project European companies, universities and research institutes work together to demonstrate innovative technologies towards a more efficient and sustainable plastic recycling. HTT role is to design a system for plastics use in electric arc furnace (EAF) to reduce the consumption of traditional fossil fuels and additives in the EAF steel making process.
Within the activities of Polynspire project www.polynspire.eu , HTT designed injection system has been started up at Ferriere Nord – Pittini Group.
The system includes complete silo storage injection dispenser with control system, as well as dedicated EAF injector – combining injection of polymers, white slag, oxy-fuel burner and supersonic oxygen.
