Ammonia-Based Direct Reduction: Cost Slashing, Industry Carbon Transformation

Here’s an article found in chemeurope.

According to the article,

  • Steel production contributes to about 7% of global CO2 emissions.
  • Hydrogen-based ironmaking is being explored as a sustainable alternative to reduce these emissions.
  • The challenge is to produce energy and hydrogen in sustainable ways for the steelmaking process.
  • Max Planck Institute for Iron Research used ammonia as a hydrogen carrier and reductant for iron.
