Hydrogen can be used as energy carrier (fuel) in burners, or it can be used as a reducing agent. This one-day course discusses aspects related to burners such as burner design, key operational parameters, burner conversion from fossil fuel to hydrogen, and the impact of switching to hydrogen burners on furnace operations. Furnace design, process control, heat distribution and transfer, as well as off-gas management and waste heat are included.

The scope of this course includes use as a reducing agent in both ferrous and non-ferrous metals applications. The mechanisms, key factors, process parameters, and equipment are covered, for solid and molten state. Furthermore, safe working with hydrogen and the production and supply infrastructure of hydrogen will be discussed.

The course will use a mix of presentations, including industry experience and problem-based breakout groups, to provide a dynamic environment with lot of interaction.

This course is designed for professionals working in industry and research organisations with at least several years of experience after M.Sc. graduation.

Learning objectives:
1) Understand the state of the art, challenges and future developments in hydrogen production, in a metallurgical context
2) Insight into the key factors that are important when considering hydrogen-based burners
3) Understand opportunities and limitations of hydrogen as a fuel, impact on operations.
4) Understand opportunities and limitations for hydrogen as reductant in ferrous and non-ferrous applications.
5) Know the key safety aspects for designing equipment, processes and operations.
6) Understand how to use hydrogen in an industrial setting.
