Further development of process and supply chains

Rio Tinto and the Salzgitter Group have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to examine technical, logistical and grade-specific issues for low-carbon supply chains and green steel production processes. The focus will be on the future supply of high-quality iron ore products for the SALCOS® programme. The SALCOS® – Salzgitter Low CO2Steelmaking programme will play a prominent role here. By 2033, the Salzgitter Group will have achieved virtually carbon-free steel production thanks to SALCOS®, assuming the right economic conditions and significant public funding.

Technical issues relating to reduction with hydrogen include optimising pellet quality, using lump ore and other iron carriers and producing a sinter for use in a direct reduction plant. Furthermore, the carbon emissions in the entire supply chain and opportunities for their registration and certification are to be examined. Tube / Hall 4 / H42 (Salzgitter)
