Tata Steel’s Journey Towards Hydrogen-based and Circular Steelmaking

Wednesday 19th June 08:40 - 09:10


Tata Steel in The Netherlands is aiming to reduce CO2 emissions by 5Mt/yr in 2030, and to become fully carbon neutral in 2045. To achieve this ambitious goal, multiple steps have to be taken in this transition journey, phasing out traditional blast furnace technology. Next to the existing blast furnace – basic oxygen steelmaking route, an electric arc furnace steelmaking route will be integrated into the production process.

This will involve a higher amount of scrap recycling, as well as the use of direct reduced iron. In addition to the challenge of reducing CO2 emissions, a focal point is the improved environmental footprint of new technology.
