Several megatrends are driving society toward sustainable economic models. In the case of energy-intensive industries such as steelmaking, the evolution toward climate neutrality will mean major investments in new industrial processes that entail the use of alternative feedstock sources. In this scenario, Tenova has developed and improved technologies able to significantly reduce energy consumption and the environmental footprint of steel production, with a very particular focus on hydrogen-based solutions. This paper outlines the SALCOS and HYBRIT projects, at the forefront of steelmaking innovation, and the role of the gas-based reduction process in these innovative routes.
