Steel Industry Decarbonization and Use of H2 (eu)

2023ko maiatzaren 24an 10:30etatik 12:00etara


In recent years, reducing greenhouse gas emissions has becoming an increasing concern worldwide. The steel industry, as one of the largest emitters of CO2, has a fundamental role to play in combating climate change.

The carbon-intensive production process is responsible for roughly 7% of the greenhouse gas emissions worldwide.  Therefore, it is imperative to find solutions to reduce those emissions and advance towards a more sustainable economy.

The Basque Country has cutting-edge companies in the development of innovative solutions, many of which are already being incorporated by the industry.

Objective of the Seminar:

This seminar seeks to bring together experts from the most important companies and technology centres of the Basque Country and to showcase the solutions and current lines of work for the decarbonization of the steel sector.

Target Foreign Company:

The seminar is focused on investment, engineering, environmental production and project managers so they have the opportunity to learn about the current solutions and take them into consideration for the decarbonization of their plants.
