What is green steel? Fundamentally, making steel without the use of fossil fuels is what is meant by “green steel.One alternative that might aid in lowering the carbon footprint of the steel sector is so-called “green hydrogen.”
“Only water is released when hydrogen is burnt. ” And if that hydrogen is created through electrolysis with only water and clean electricity, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group asserts that there are no CO2 emissions at all (MHI). According to MHI, hydrogen can be produced with low carbon emissions if fossil fuels are paired with carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS) technology. This substance is known as “blue hydrogen.”
Electrified arc furnaces are an additional choice. These furnaces are progressively replacing conventional ones, but because they do not always use renewable energy, the steel they create might not always be environmentally friendly.
Uses of green steel in sustainable city
In terms of intensive energy and resource usage in sustainable cities, the steel industry is currently the largest industrial sector. It is one of the top three carbon dioxide (CO2) emitters, and if traditional methods are used, the levels of emissions will only increase given the aggressive expansion plans being made by businesses throughout the world.
In India, the iron ore and steel business contribute 12 percent of all CO2 emissions, compared to the global average of 8 percent, according to a presentation made by ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India at a Steel Mint event.
Future for green steel and the steel industry
We predict a stronger push for the manufacture of green steel in the upcoming years, partly as a result of political pressures.
Increased regulations on significant greenhouse gas generating businesses are the most likely result of the pressure being placed on governments around the world to lessen their nations’ environmental footprint.
It is inevitable that we will see a new steel production process that emits fewer greenhouse gases, whether it is carbon taxes, R&D subsidies, or rebates, or increased environmental controls on new installations.
Since there would be a large increase in demand for green power, increasing the production of green steel also has broader ramifications for the energy industry. In NEOM, Saudi Arabia’s sustainable city, Dana Steel has received approval (KSA).
