thyssenkrupp: project for lower carbon steel production
(CercleFinance.com) - France's Air Liquide is joining Germany's thyssenkrupp as part of a project aiming at developing lower carbon steel production.
For the first time, hydrogen will be injected to partially replace pulverized coal at a large scale in the blast furnace during steel production.
The solution will be implemented at one of the blast furnaces in thyssenkrupp's integrated steel mills in Duisburg site, Germany.
Transferred to all blast furnaces at the site, thyssenkrupp aims at reducing CO2 emissions in the production process by up to 20%, the companies said.
