Energy Efficiency Assessment and Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Tool for the Iron and Steel Industry


EAGER Steel tool has been developed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. EAGER Steel tool allows you to evaluate the impact of selected energy efficiency measures in the iron and steel industry by choosing the measures that you would likely introduce in your facility, or would like to evaluate for potential use. You select the share of implementation for each of the efficiency measures, and the EAGER Steel tool will calculate the typical energy savings (electricity, fuel, final, and primary energy), CO2 emission reduction, cost, and simple payback period. The energy saving and cost data for each energy efficiency measures are typical meaning that they are based on some case-studies conducted in steel plants around the world. EAGER Steel tool is designed for the iron and steel production facilities that have one or more of the following processes: 1) Sintering; 2) Coke making; 3) Iron Making – Blast Furnace; 4) Steelmaking by basic oxygen furnace (BOF); 5) Steelmaking by electric arc furnace (EAF); 6) Casting and Refining; 7) Hot Rolling; 8) Cold Rolling.

The techno-economic analysis for 46 energy efficiency measures for different processes in the iron and steel production can be done using the EAGER Steel tool.
