ABSTRACT

The production of the agglomerate is always related to the consumption of energy,
occurrence of solid polluting substances and emissions, which are the main source of air
pollution. The submitted work contains the analysis of knowledge obtained from the
literature, but mainly analysis of the results gained from the laboratory sintering pan.
This laboratory sintering pan sufficiently simulates conditions present on the sinter belt
in relation to the production of CO, CO2, NOx, SOx and solid polluting substances in the
sintering process. On the basis of the theoretical analysis as well as the analysis of
measured data, computing of balance, production, qualitative and quantitative
parameters of the sintering process we can express the opinion that when changing
various parameters of the sintering process (for example, changing the sucking air
underpressure) these emissions can decrease. The significant decrease of emissions can
be achieved through minimization of the fuel content in the sintering charge.

Keywords: sintering, laboratory sintering pan, CO, CO2 emissions
