Tenaris, Edison and Snam to decarbonise steelmaking with green hydrogen

Tenaris, Edison and Snam have joined forces to decarbonise Tenaris’ Dalmine pipe mill in Italy with green hydrogen, as part of what is thought to be the first application of the clean fuel on an industrial scale in Italy’s steel sector.

Announcing the collaboration today (11th Jan), the companies said they will identify and implement the most suitable solutions for the production, distribution and use of green hydrogen at the mill.

The project will look to generate hydrogen and oxygen through an approximate 20 MW electrolyser that will be installed at the Dalmine plant and to adapt the steelmaking process to use green hydrogen instead of natural gas.

A joint statement said the initiative may also include the construction of a storage site for the accumulation of high-pressure hydrogen and the use of oxygen, locally produced through electrolysis, within the melting process.
