Just what is green steel?
This new method of production is done without the use of fossil fuels. Steel is produced using hydrogen, not coal, therefore helping to reduce emissions in the production stages. As an additional benefit to this, the green steel will also have the lowest carbon footprint currently possible within this industry!
In the UK there is a target for becoming net zero in terms of emissions by 2050. Although this is something that needs mass contributions for various other industries as well, this 14% reduction will be a make a big difference alone.
In 2020, H2 Green Steel was founded as a company who focused on producing this type of steel. In collaboration with Boden in Sweden, they are now in a position to start production at their Swedish site in 2024. The site will have fully integrated production processes, end-to-end digitalisation, electricity from fossil free sources and hydrogen as fuel, not coal.
