TRENDS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ENERGY-SAVING
TECHNOLOGIES IN METALLURGY

Summary. The purpose of the analysis is to identify trends in the
development of metallurgical production and the use of energy-saving
metallurgical technologies. It is shown that the world continues a steady trend
of increasing steel production. This indicates an increase in metal consumption
in industry. Despite the downward trend in steel production in Ukraine, the
attention of metallurgists to the use of energy-saving technologies has not
diminished. Trends and examples of the use of energy-saving technologies in
world practice in comparison with trends in domestic metallurgy are given.
Perspective technologies of blast furnace, steelmaking and rolling production
are shown. Their advantages and disadvantages are noted. It is shown that the
production volumes of metallurgical products are closely related to the
technical level of production and the structure of steel smelting. It is noted that
the development trends of domestic metallurgical production on a general basis
coincide with the development trends of world metallurgy. The advantages and
disadvantages of domestic ferrous metallurgy are shown. The directions of
scientific research of the Iron and Steel Institute named after Z.I. Nekrasov
NAS of Ukraine (ISI), which correspond to global trends in the development
of metallurgy and cover the whole range of problems in the production of metal
products. The developments are comprehensive, which is a very important
advantage in the modern world. The ISI has a serious scientific potential for the
latest modern technological and technical solutions for domestic metallurgical
production, which are already at the development stage adapted to existing
technological and raw materials conditions and their changes. Most of the new
