Abstract [en]

The complex structure of the energy and mass flows in steelmaking has resulted in many attempts to describe the process dynamics by models. Swedish steelmaker SSAB Tunnplåt has long practical experience on how to use optimisation models for planning and decision-making related to energy and material utilisation. Sustainable development is development aimed at improving the quality of life for everyone, and is a factor of increasing importance in the industry. This paper exemplifies how optimisation models can be used for systematic analysis, design and balancing of steelmaking systems, and how it can be used for optimisation of sustainability indicators such as energy efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions and material utilisation with a limited effort and time. The methodology can also be extended to include cost optimisation
