Abstract

Potential reduction in carbon intensity of steelmaking (for integrated plants and electric furnaces) is estimated, based on published consumption figures. The analysis shows that substantial reductions in carbon intensity are feasible with existing process options. In future, ironmaking with green hydrogen would be a competitive option should the anticipated reductions in the relative cost of green hydrogen be realized.
