    Primetals Technologies Advances Continuous Casting with Innovative Solution for Mold Level Control

    For decades, Primetals Technologies has been refining the roll geometry of continuous casting machines, resulting in an increasingly stable mold level during the casting process. The most recent development is a ground-breaking model for establishing the ideal caster roll geometry already at the design stage. The solution enables steel producers to implement new or revamped casters that are designed to minimize mold level fluctuations during production. Therefore, they will be able to cast at higher speeds while producing slabs of high metallurgical quality.

    Important Milestone Reached at Steelanol CCU Plant in Belgium

    November 2023 saw the first industrial-scale production of ethanol at the Steelanol plant in Ghent, Belgium. This marks an important step toward full operation of the Steelanol plant. The project is a collaboration between ArcelorMittal, LanzaTech, ERM, and Primetals Technologies. Steelanol is Europe’s first carbon capture and utilization (CCU) project. The plant captures carbon-rich industrial gases from the blast furnaces at ArcelorMittal Ghent and biologically converts them into ethanol.
