With the experience and economic value of the steel supply chain, the industry can make a significant contribution to the development of sustainable global markets, and carbon capture technologies can play a vital role in reducing emissions. The steel industry directly accounts for 7% of carbon dioxide emissions and 8% of global energy demand each year. Carbon capture in steel industry plays a vital role to make the environment clean. Carbon capture technology can trap carbon dioxide and transport it through pipelines for storage.
The introduction of CO2 capture techniques in the air-blown blast furnace and in the reduction melt in conventional smelters can provide a low and currently acceptable additional cost of steel; however, the resulting CO2 intensity of 1.5t/t raw steel makes it difficult to achieve the 2DS target of decarburization for the steel industry from 2020.
The best thing is carbon capture in the steel industry is helping the industries and allowing various businesses to change the way they view carbon. Carbon capture technology is helping the economy and environment to produce a clean and pollution-free environment. Various companies are helping with this technology. Dastur Energy is one of them.
As the steel production process is both energy- and carbon-intensive, the steel industry is under increasing pressure to reduce its global carbon footprint. Like other carbon-intensive industries, the European steel industry is under increasing pressure to reduce its carbon footprint. In Europe, CCS for the industry is still under consideration, as evidenced by several events in the industry earlier this year.
