Posco develops stainless steel for desulfurization facilities

Korean media reported that Posco, the largest South Korean steelmaker, has succeeded in developing core materials used in desulfurization facilities at industrial plants.

Posco has developed three types of high alloy stainless steel that can be used to make absorbers, gas-gas heaters and zero liquid discharge equipment, all of which can help cut sulphur oxide emissions in industrial plants such as steel plants, oil refineries and thermoelectric power plants.

The new types of steel are specially designed to withstand corrosion under harsh conditions. Posco said its high alloy stainless steels have been under development for about two years, have undergone field tests to prove their high quality, and have recently been supplied to a desulfurization facility producer in South Korea.
