Electric Arc Furnace

Electric Arc Furnace

Industry Relevance

Electric Arc Furnaces (EAF) are thermoprocessing units that use plasma arcs as heat sources capable of melting scrap or direct reduced iron (DRI) through heat transfer (conduction, convection, radiation)

Accurate computational modelling of the physical process in the electric arc is very challenging, but would have significant impact on ability to improve EAF efficiency[1]

Quantum in Real Life



"We look forward to seeing how quantum computing can yield a significant near-term benefit for our customers. PASQAL’s algorithms for solving differential equations and its neutral atom quantum processors are ideally suited to solve the computational problems which are most relevant and challenging for our customers, and we look forward to working with PASQAL to advance this field."
