Transformation requires support

Transforming steel production involves considerable investment, and significantly increases production costs. Successful decarbonization depends upon an overall policy framework that unites climate, energy, and economic concerns, and establishes a clear political commitment to a competitive steel industry.

Transformation requires support

Green energy is the primary requirement for carbon-neutral steel production.

Another, no less important, prerequisite for decarbonizing steel production (achieved both via a hybrid technology using electric arc furnaces, as well as a long-term technological transformation based on green hydrogen) is the availability of sufficient quantities of renewable energy at commercially realistic prices, and efficient power grids.

This is the only way in which tomorrow’s technologies can be applied in a truly competitive manner.

greentec steel embodies voestalpine’s claim to high quality and advanced technology, as well as its focus on sustainability, because our “green” steel will meet the most stringent quality standards and offer customers high-tech solutions tailored to their individual requirements. At the same time, with its research activities, technologies, innovations and steel’s vital role in a sustainable world voestalpine is making an important contribution to achieving the climate goals over the long term.
