Responsible steel mills around the world are researching “Low-Carbon” technologies which will radically reduce the impact steel making has on climate change, namely in terms of CO2 emissions.
Most major energy savings have already been achieved and further large reductions are not possible with existing technology. To drastically reduce overall emission of CO2 in the steel industry, breakthrough technologies are critical.
The Future of Steel
Today many different technologies are being worked on around the world. Here are a few:
- Hydrogen as a reducing agent: Hydrogen is used to reduce iron ore, thereby eliminating the creation of CO2 while producing H2O (water) instead.
- Carbon capture and storage: Using technology to generate a clean and concentrated CO2 stream that can be captured and stored.
- Biomass as a reducing agent: Replacing coal with charcoal from biomass.
- Electrolysis: Reducing iron ore using electricity.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
The industrial steel supply mills that partner with TITUS STEEL are working around the clock to find ways to reduce CO2 emissions. Titus Steel makes its buying decision on many factors including quality, delivery, price and CO2 footprint.
Titus Steel is dedicated to working with industrial steel supply companies who prioritize sustainability and are actively working to reduce their carbon footprint. Our ENDURA, ENDURA Dual, Titus Manganese and Tool and Die steels are exclusively produced in steel mills with large research departments and a dedication to CO2 elimination.
