Steel is often perceived as among the most difficult of the so-called “hard-to-abate” sectors. And yet, steel plants can greatly improve their carbon footprints by using techniques that include digitalization; hydrogen- and direct-reduced iron processes to eliminate the use of coal, reduction of heat loss in the casting and rolling process or recycled waste gases and heat.
