Exploitation of projects for Low-Carbon future steel industry

The project “LowCarbonFuture” has the objective to collect, summarize, evaluate and promote research projects and knowledge dealing with CO2 mitigation in iron and steelmaking.

As final result, LowCarbonFuture will generate a roadmap stating research needs, requirements and boundary conditions for breakthrough technologies and a new CO2 lean steel production to guide the EU steel industry towards the world’s climate contract and the EU climate goals, e.g. by implementing the key findings in the strategic research agenda of the European Steel Technology Platform (ESTEP).

Furthermore, “LowCarbonFuture” will contribute to an update of the steel roadmap for a low carbon Europe 2050 and the current BIG-Scale initiative of EUROFER.
