Simulative Analyse der nachhaltigen Transformation von Gussbetrieben

The current energy crisis and the high cost of fossil fuels pose major challenges for energy-intensive industries such as the non-ferrous foundry industry. Therefore, it is important to promote the transition to renewable energy sources with the help of the electrification of the melting units. In this pilot study, for the first time the conversion of conventional foundries to sustainable technologies is simulated. For this purpose, a simulation model is developed based on a selected example company. It considers the energy consumption and the logistical effects of a converted operation. The simulation model is implemented as a hybrid simulation combining a discrete event simulation at the plant level and a process simulation within the furnaces. The study shows how a sustainable energy supply can be achieved in foundries. It also considers the impact of efficiency, energy costs and emissions.
