According to a report, Germany’s Thyssenkrupp plans to phase out CO2-intensive coke-based steel production and replace it with a hydrogen-based process by 2050. Along those same lines, ArcelorMittal intends to use hydrogen on an industrial scale in the steelmaking process for the first time. Not to be left out, Tenova and Salzgitter AG will cooperate on a concept for a significantly CO2-reduced steel production that includes the flexible incremental utilization of hydrogen.
