Together towards a low-carbon steel industry.

Steel is a fundamental part of all major industries. It is also one of the largest sources of CO₂ emissions, responsible for approximately 10% of global emissions. Given the long lifespan of steel production equipment and the high costs of replacement and energy usage, steel production is difficult to make sustainable.

Reduction of emissions in the steel value chain.

Steel production, mainly through blast furnaces and basic oxygen furnaces, contributes to 95% of the total greenhouse gas emissions in this sector.

Many steel companies are already taking initiatives to reduce their direct and indirect (scope 1 and 2) emissions.

They do this by implementing energy efficient technologies, electrifying processes, and using carbon-free alternatives.

A look at the future.

To meet the challenges in steel decarbonization, it is necessary to transform both raw materials and production processes. This could lead to a geographical separation of iron and steel production, with iron production facilities moving to locations with access to cheap green hydrogen. Investments in these transformations require guarantees, such as the availability of low-carbon iron ore and the demand for low-carbon steel.
