Iron & Steel
Enabling low-carbon emissions steelmaking through customized and cost-effective solutions based on our IP.
The steel industry accounts for 3 to 4 gigatonne or about ~7% to 9% of the total annual anthropogenic CO2 emissions. The central problem in decarbonizing the steel value chain is replacing fossil fuels – that play a critical role in the thermo-chemical production processes of iron & steel. Customized solutions oriented towards these processes are therefore required for large scale CO2 abatement, so that the steel sector does not become a blindspot, inhibiting the energy transition journey to a net-zero future.
Depending on the production route (scrap-EAF, DRI-EAF or BF-BOF), CO2 emissions range from ~0.4 to over 2 tonnes per tonne of crude steel. While most of the major steel players in the world have set out ambitious carbon abatement goals (short term reduction of ~30% CO2 by 2030 and long term target of carbon neutrality by 2050), there are several challenges in the way:
Dastur Energy is helping steel producers transition to low-carbon emissions steel through viable mega-scale solutions across the entire steel production value chain
- Iron making: Coal / Coke / Natural Gas / Syngas / H2 / Biomass / Plastics
- Steel making: Hot Metal / Scrap / DRI / HBI / Pig iron
- Syngas (as a reducing agent): Coal / Petcoke / Biomass
