One day course at TMS2024: Hydrogen as energy carrier and reductant in metallurgical applications

Hydrogen as Energy Carrier & Reductant in Metallurgical Applications

We are excited to announce a special one-day course on “Hydrogen as Energy Carrier and Reductant in Metallurgical Applications” at the TMS2024 153rd Annual Meeting & Exhibition. This event will take place from March 3 to 7, 2024, at the Hyatt Regency Orlando in Orlando, Florida, USA. The course itself will be held on Sunday, March 3, 2024, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Course overview

Hydrogen, a versatile element, can serve as both an energy carrier and a reducing agent in metallurgical applications. This comprehensive one-day course is tailored for industry professionals and national lab experts with several years of experience post M.Sc. graduation. The course covers crucial aspects of burners, including design, operational parameters, conversion from fossil fuel to hydrogen, and the impact on furnace operations. Additionally, it explores furnace design, process control, heat distribution, off-gas management, and waste heat considerations. The scope extends to the use of hydrogen as a reducing agent in both ferrous and non-ferrous metals applications, covering mechanisms, key factors, process parameters, and equipment considerations in both solid and molten states.
