The Path for Electric Steelmaking and Renewable Energy in the United States

  • Francesco Memoli, Tenova Inc.

The United States is the region of the world where electric steelmaking is most developed, with 70% of the entire steel production being made with electric arc furnaces, with tremendous benefits in terms of reduction of the carbon footprint of our industry. Meanwhile, in the last 10 years, renewable energy has more than doubled its volume, surpassing coal for the first time since 1885, with 11.5 quadrillion Btu. New meltshops entirely fed by renewable electricity have been conceived and will soon be a reality. This paper analyzes challenges and opportunities for a carbon-free steel industry based on renewable.
