Hamburg, 16 September 2019 – ArcelorMittal announced that it has commissioned technology provider Midrex Technologies to design a demonstration plant at its Hamburg site to produce steel with hydrogen. Both companies have now signed a Framework Collaboration Agreement (FCA) to cooperate on several projects, ranging from research and development to the implementation of new technologies.
In the coming years, the demonstration plant will produce about 100,000 tons of direct reduced iron per year – initially with grey hydrogen sourced from natural gas. Energy for hydrogen production could come from wind farms off the coast of Northern Germany.
The plant will be the world’s first direct reduction plant on an industrial scale, powered by hydrogen.
