Breaking hydrogen out of water in a way that’s both sustainable and economical could have huge consequences for a number of industries
Carbon-dioxide-free steel production
SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall have launched an initiative to solve the carbon dioxide problem in the Swedish steel industry. Together, they will initiate work to develop a steel production process that emits water rather than carbon dioxide.
"Green" ammonia is the key to meeting the twin challenges of the 21st century (Siemens)
A "Green" ammonia demonstration programme enables the switching to renewable electricity to make ammonia. Besides enhancing global food security, store excess wind-electricity and building synergies with clean-mobility industries, this can prevent over 360 million tons of CO2 worldwide from being released into the atmosphere.
