HYBRIT – short for Hydrogen Breakthrough Ironmaking Technology – is a joint venture between SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall, aiming to replace coal with hydrogen in the steelmaking process. A successful HYBRIT means reducing Sweden’s CO2 emissions by 10% and Finland’s by 7%.

In collaboration with Lund University, SEI explores opportunities and risks in the wider policy context where the HYBRIT development takes place, including analysis of enabling and restricting factors in the Swedish and EU governance.

The research is part of a Swedish Energy Agency supported programme researching technical and institutional aspects of the HYBRIT initiative.
