The conversion of steel mill off-gases to base chemicals is a promising perspective to improve the financial return of steel-making in Europe and fight CO2 emissions. In the Carbon2Chem joint research project, mathematical models are developed to simulate operation scenarios of cross-industrial networks and chemical plants embedded in a steel mill environment. Methodically, the modeling follows a multilevel approach combining models of different depth and origin in a common simulation framework. Here, the synthesis of methanol is simulated and analyzed for different gas conditioning scenarios.
