Low-Carbon Index System for Steel Firms Based on Energy Flow

Rui Hu

In order to achieve energy conservation goals made in 2009 Climate Summit in Copenhagen, measures to realize low-carbon production in manufacture enterprises in China were studied. The establishment and application of low-carbon production evaluation system were introduced. The two main methods: Energy flow analysis and AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) were brought in to satisfy the target. The path of carbon travelling through the whole process was discussed. Also, a weighted indicator system based on the analysis of energy flow was constructed. A three layer framework considering five different aspects which pointed out a direction to achieve the energy-consumption goal was designed. The results showed that the system was available and the energy recycling was the most critical factor for the low-carbon production and also the most effective way for energy management to achieve its environment-friendly goal. Moreover, a practical example was given and the effectiveness of the evaluation system was verified.
