ArcelorMittal Indiana Harbor Awarded DOE Funding
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded ArcelorMittal Indiana Harbor funding for its No. 7 Blast Furnace Gas Flare Capture project. The blast-furnace project includes the installation of an efficient recovery boiler that uses waste blast-furnace gas generated during the iron-making process to produce electricity and steam on-site. According to ArcelorMittal, the project will save approximately 3.66 trillion BTUs per year from the waste gas. The company was granted funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for projects that promote the use of combined heat and power, district energy systems, waste energy and recovery systems, and energy efficiency.
