Steelmaking doesn’t need to come with CO2 emissions anymore, and SSAB has the technology

Steel manufacturing is a critical industry, creating the building blocks for so much of the world. But the steel industry also comes with considerable impacts, producing as much as seven percent of global CO2 emissions, thereby contributing significantly to global climate change. SSAB has found a cleaner way to produce steel without fossil fuels and massive carbon emissions. The byproduct of its process: water.

SSAB is highlighting the cleanliness of its steelmaking process by bottling some of the water , calling it Pure Waste (normally it is recycled to produce new hydrogen). SSAB Chief Technology Officer Martin Pei even took a bottle with him to COP27 to take a drink and demonstrate the paradigm shift SSAB’s technology presents.
