CO2 Reduction and environmental aspects in the DRI industry

Carbon-neutral Steelmaking: pathway for DRI


  • Mr. John ATHERTON

Primary authors


Many steel industry roadmaps toward the very significant reduction of CO2 emissions required by the political agenda in many countries envisage the DRI/EAF system as a key component along the pathway to carbon neutrality in steelmaking. In this respect, IIMA is putting together a white paper on some key practical issues that need to be considered beyond the macro-level issues such as availability and cost of power and hydrogen. These include adequacy of raw material supply to support significant growth in DRI production, the value-in-use of DRI produced with hydrogen in EAF steelmaking and the impact of a reduced carbon footprint on EAF operations, as well as some longer term qualitative aspects of scrap supply. The presentation will share some of IIMA’s thoughts and concerns on such issues.
