Germany’s first hydrogen-based steel production plant that uses the green gas as reducing agent in the blast furnace has begun operation in Dillingen.
Accomplished by injecting hydrogen-rich coke gas, the use of hydrogen in steel production is a key factor in reducing carbon emissions.
The coke gas injection system is an important step toward producing green steel and minimising the use of resources.
Carbon emissions from the blast furnace can be reduced by replacing the carbon in the blast furnace with hydrogen as a reducing agent and energy source.
