The project team analyses how emissions from steel production can be feasibly deployed.
Steel mill gases created during steel production make a major contribution to the unpopular CO2 emissions. The project involving researchers at Ruhr University Bochum aims to help use them in a sensible way. The plan by the 17 partners in the project “Carbon2Chem” is to acquire valuable basic substances for the chemical industry from steel mill gases. This shall be achieved by adding hydrogen to catalytic processes. The necessary hydrogen will be produced by electrolysis, while the electricity for electrolysis comes from renewable energies.
