Materials such as iron and steel are the backbone of modern civilization. Due to the energy-intensive metallurgical processes involved, however, the sector is often considered as one of the largest contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions.
Many technological improvements have been made in the past, including the increasing adoption of hydrogen as an agent for iron ore reduction, which has a great potential to reduce the sector’s ecological footprint. On the other hand, some parts of the steel manufacturing process, where carbon cannot be fully substituted, remain a challenge for industrial decarbonization.
By delivering biocarbon, the SOLER Group thus contributes to the decarbonization of steel and iron production.
