The Future of Steelmaking: Decarbonized and Digitalized by Professor Katja Windt, CDO, SMS group GmbH.

De-carbonized steelmaking requires concentration on the entire value chain from iron ore until finished products. The key game changer is hydrogen where blast furnaces are replaced by direct reduction. In parallel, green energy for electrolysis and electric arc furnaces are key to de-carbonize the hydrogen production and scrap-based route. Downstream production can be de-carbonized by using hydrogen in furnaces, inductive heating and water recycling.

With the latest predictive analytics applied for equipment performance and technical service, carbon dioxide can reduced even further by avoiding waste material, increase of equipment availability and overall reduction of energy consumption.
