Presentation title:  Key technical challenges of hydrogen shaft furnace ironmaking and the countermeasures

Professor Geoff Wang received his PhD in Metallurgical Engineering from the Northeastern University, Shenyang, China in 1990, and then worked in Wuhan University of Science and Technology in China for 5 years and about 2 years at University of New South Wales, Australia. He joined the University of Queensland (UQ) in 1996 until now. Currently he is Faculty Director of China Research Partnerships, and Director of the HBIS-UQ Innovation Centre for Sustainable Steel at UQ. His research activity and interests are directed towards developing energy and environmental technologies dealing with the coal and steel industries. He has been active and performed many research programs in clean energy and low-carbon technologies such as pulverized coal injection into blast furnaces, hydrogen production through lower emission coal combustion, and chemical and electrochemical conversion of CO2 to fuel or for carbon recycling. In recent years, he is devoted to the study of hydrogen shaft furnace ironmaking and improved blast furnace ironmaking with hydrogen-rich and carbon recycling through CO2 electrolysis.
