Description

This dataset describes the process used in a sinter production unit within a factory operation named Z7. Sinter, which is a product of sintering powder ore, is primarily used as a raw material in blast furnaces for ironmaking. As an intermediate product in steel production, sinter is essential for ensuring efficient blast furnace operations by providing high permeability to the burden material. Users of this dataset should accurately represent the emission factors and energy inputs associated with the sinter production process in the factory's Z7 operation. This includes direct emissions from the sintering process as well as indirect emissions from energy generation. Users should also consider the technological applicability of the dataset, ensuring it aligns with the specific characteristics of the sinter production and blast furnace operations they are assessing. This dataset should be used in conjunction with best practice guidelines for Life Cycle Assessment of steel production processes, taking into account the unique aspects of sintering when modeling the iron and steel making lifecycle.
