Steel – the Hard to abate Industry – A pathway to climate neutrality - CANCELLED
Alexander Fleischanderl from Primetals Technology will speak on Tuesday April 7th at 6pm at the Centuria Building, Teesside University. Tea/coffee and chat from 5:30pm.
The Steel industry accounts for a substantial portion of our global carbon footprint. To date this hard-to-abate industry requires carbon for metal oxide reduction and the extremely high temperatures for production. How will the steel industry become climate neutral before 2050. Mid-term only ground-breaking technology solutions based on pure hydrogen steelmaking and direct steelmaking with Molten Oxide Electrolysis can achieve this requirement. On short-term bridge technologies like direct reduction with tie in option of hydrogen, bio-technologies as CCU measure and efficient waste-heat recovery solutions from liquid slags and hot waste-gases will contribute to meet the 2030 target.
