To become carbon-neutral by 2050, we have a number of large breakthrough initiatives underway, in addition to the continuous improvement projects that are common to all ArcelorMittal sites. Some projects are already operational, and some are being built right now. We will deploy these initiatives along a synergetic combination of blast furnace and direct reduced iron (DRI) route.

A steel plant is a challenging environment to work in. When talking about a ‘light’ coil of steel, we are actually talking of coils that weigh around 20 tonnes. When referring to a ‘cold’ slab we are actually speaking of a steel slab that leaves the furnace of the hot strip mill’ furnace with an average temperature of around 1,150°C.
