“Thyssen-Krupp wants to use steel mill gases as a resource”

Thyssen-Krupp AG / Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

German steel manufacturer Thyssen-Krupp launched a research project on using steel mill gases like nitrogen, methane or hydrogen oxide as resources for chemical materials, writes Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. The project, dubbed Carbon2Chem, showed how climate protection and a competitive steel production could be successfully linked thanks to research and innovation efforts in Germany, said federal research minister Johanna Wanka at the presentation of the plans. “The concept is expected to be ready for industrial scale use around 2030,” according to Thyssen-Krupp’s website.
