Decarbonising steel – a net-zero pathway

Steel production could be achieved with almost no carbon emissions via US$ 278 billion of extra investment by 2050, according to a new report from research firm BloombergNEF. Hydrogen and recycling are likely to play a central role in reducing emissions from steel production. Steel is responsible for around 7% of man-made greenhouse gas emissions every year and is one of the world’s most polluting industries.
