Sweden's Ovako gets permit for hydrogen unit to lower steel emissionsMon, 14 Nov 2022 00:00:00 GMT
Swedish steel producer Ovako said Nov. 11 that it has secured an environmental permit for a hydrogen electrolyzer to lower carbon emissions from steel production as early as mid-2023. The electrolyzer, Swedens largest, is due to start production of green hydrogen using renewable power before the summer of 2023, a company statement said. The
Hydrogen use in steelmaking faces huge challenges: conferenceFri, 28 Oct 2022 00:00:00 GMT
Growing energy use in renewable hydrogen production, and the need for new infrastructure, integration and storage systems are major hurdles for policymakers and financial markets in supporting demand for a new green economy. So said participants at Thursdays EURACTIV hydrogen in steelmaking conference attended by Kallanish. According to Ruud Kempener of the working group
Electrification faces obstacles, hydrogen steelmaking distant: ...Tue, 25 Oct 2022 00:00:00 GMT
There is a long way to go before hydrogen-based steelmaking takes off on an industrial scale, but electrification through the electric arc furnace route is readily available. However, the availability of low-carbon electricity and scrap feedstock pose major obstacles, says Czech and Slovak steel association Steel Union. Czech steel production is dominated by the
Hydrogen supply will meet steel needs: panelFri, 14 Oct 2022 00:00:00 GMT
Hydrogen production capacity will expand to cover the requirements of a growing hydrogen-based steel industry but there will be bottlenecks in the short term. All technological routes must be ramped-up simultaneously to achieve the rapid scale-up required for decarbonisation, was the conclusion of panellists at Thursdays Hydrogen Iron & Steel Making Forum in Stockholm.
Steelmakers must collaborate, think global for decarbonisation: ...Thu, 13 Oct 2022 00:00:00 GMT
Collaboration among steelmakers and industry stakeholders will be key to accelerating the energy transition away from fossil fuels, was the conclusion of panellists at Wednesdays Hydrogen Iron & Steel Making Forum in Stockholm. ArcelorMittal chief technical officer Pinakin Chaubal pointed out that steelmakers have spent years trying to differentiate from each other, whereas now
