By using metallurgical slag from an electric arc furnace as an inventory material in thermal energy storage for concentrated solar power plants, it is possible to make a significant step forward in two transformation processes: energy and raw materials. In this paper, design studies of slag-based thermal energy storage are carried out. Different slag-specific design concepts are developed, calculated, and evaluated by a method based on established management tools. Finally, concepts for further investigations are defined. The highest aptitude value and the lowest risk value are achieved by the vertical storage design with axial flow direction. View this paper.
