An Overview of H2 Green Steel’s Direct Reduction Plant

Tuesday 18th June 14:30 - 15:00


Hydrogen steelmaking for a sustainable future; hydrogen-based DRI process overview

H2 Green Steel is on a mission to decarbonize hard-to-abate industries, and the steel industry is a prime place to start. Steel production is the source of 7-9% of global CO2 emissions, 5% of CO2 output in the European Union, and 14% of CO2 generated in Sweden, the home country of H2GS AB.

Sweden possesses an abundance of natural resources necessary to support green steel production via the direct reduction-electric arc furnace route (DR-EAF). H2 Green Steel is bringing together the technology expertise of Midrex in processing iron ore into steel products, creating green hydrogen with giga-scale electrolysis, and developing a circular supply chain.
