INITIATE presented at the Global Steel Sustainability Summit 2024

Yesterday, our INITIATE project was presented during a panel discussion at the Global Steel Sustainability Summit 2024 in Hamburg, Germany.

The panel, titled Carbon Capture and Utilization: Developing Tomorrow’s Technology for Steel Industry was moderated by Anastasios Perimenis, Secretary General at our project partner CO2 Value Europe and saw the participation of Soledad van Ejik, Business Developer at our project partner TNO, Marian Flores Granobles, PhD at our project partner ArcelorMittal, and Burçin Temel McKenna, Global Head of Carbon Capture Competency Center at Ramboll.

After a detailed overview of the INITIATE, the discussion explored: the business case for the Sorption Enhanced Water Gas Shift (SEWGS) concept in the steel sector; positioning SEWGS in transitioning to more sustainable steel manufacturing including the furthering of Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) concepts for the steel sector; and the integration of CCU for other hard-to-abate sectors.   

Realising the ultimate transition of steel production will require a concerted effort from all stakeholders including governments, associations, solution providers, steel makers and the support of emerging technologies that aim at improving sustainability across the entire steel industry value chain. Building a greener steel world is a long-term investment that will yield enormous economic and environmental benefits over the full life cycle of green steel.
