Paul Wurth as a global leader in ironmaking technology is actively working on CO2 reduction approaches for the blast furnace based iron production route. Therefore, a dedicated R&D group focusing on different CO2 reduction techniques along with the usages of green energy and hydrogen has been setup. One of the most promising research paths for the modernization of the blast furnace steel production route is the injection of hydrogenous gases into the tuyere and the shaft of the blast furnace. Paul Wurth is currently developing a new reforming process for syngas production using exhaust gases from the steel making plant. This new reforming process is highly influenced by many operation parameters e.g. the operating pressure, temperature or feed composition. At Paul Wurth, we already developed and validated a reaction model in order to set up a pilot plant, which will be operating under real process conditions. For a future integration of the reforming plant in the steel plant, we need to upscale the pilot plant to the industrial operation while evaluating possible configurations of combining reforming plants with other CO2 emission reduction technologies such as e.g. carbon capture.
If you are an open-minded, communicative and dynamic person who loves to work in a team, if you are an organisational talent and keep the overview of your projects, then you are in the right place.
