Steel Is A Climate Nightmare. Sweden Has A Plan To Make It Green

Steel Is A Climate Nightmare. Sweden Has A Plan To Make It Green
A pilot plant making steel from green energy and hydrogen instead of coal could have big consequences for an industry with one of the worst environmental footprints.

Globally, steel production contributes 7-9% of the world’s direct emissions from fossil fuels, and demand for steel is projected to increase thanks to growing global populations and rising urbanization.

The HYBRIT plant ― a collaboration between SSAB, Europe’s largest iron ore producer LKAB and power company Vattenfall ― will use renewable energy and hydrogen to extract oxygen from iron ore, producing water as a byproduct, rather than carbon dioxide. The whole process will use no fossil fuels and could mark a monumental shift in an industry which employs 6 million people globally but has struggled to see a place for itself in a decarbonized world.
