Abstract

Metallurgical production in blast furnaces is characterized by its high energy intensity and complex nature of production. Pig iron as input raw material also contains various other elements. These elements are contained in pig iron in the form of compounds, and some of them can be described as harmful for metallurgical production. Harmful elements have a negative impact on the production process, the final product of metallurgical production and some of these elements also have a negative impact on the environment. These elements must be removed by means of various methods because of their deteriorative impact on production. This article deals with the analysis of the presence of harmful elements in the blast furnace process and the potential methods of their removal.

Keywords: harmful elements, blast furnace process, iron
