On August 16, Sinosteel MECC signed the contract of 1mtpa thin slab casting and rolling (TSCR) project with Shanxi Hongda Iron & Steel Group. The two companies will team up to develop China’s first TSCR production line of independent intellectual property rights.
The energy consumption is only 1/5 and the emission of CO2 is only 1/4 of conventional hot continuous rolling process. Under the background of carbon neutrality, the steel industry encounters tremendous pressure for low carbon emissions. As one of the representative near-net-shape steel manufacturing technologies, TSCR technology has attracted extensive attention.
With the improvement of the continuity of TSCR technology, the production line is greatly shortened, especially the third-generation technology, the endless strip production line. Meanwhile, the increase in continuity substantially increases productivity, production yield, and energy efficiency.
