To meet the Paris Agreement, steel producers will need to halve their CO2 emissions from the steel-making process by 2030, rising to a 90% cut in emissions by 2040.
Innovative technologies are being developed to help the industry get there – substituting coal with renewable hydrogen being one of the most promising ones – but the task seems daunting. This COP27 side event presented by State of Green and partners Topsoe and H2Green Steel aims to provide inspiration and to discuss some of the critical drivers of the green steel transition, including political strategies, collaboration across the value chain and the role of off-takers in supporting early market development.
In addition, the panel will address the importance of realizing the societal benefits associated with a just transition such as green growth and employment.
