Icon of a present

The need

Steel is a strategic material in the transition to a low carbon economy, but the coal used for its production is responsible for 7 percent of global CO2 emissions. Decarbonising the steel value chain is essential to achieving a C-neutral society. It can only be done by rethinking iron production.

The solution

GravitHy plans to create a low-CO2 iron plant and to replicate its model outside France. Using hydrogen to react with iron ore avoids the high CO2 emissions of traditional methods. The product is direct reduced iron (DRI), which can be used as feedstock for low-CO2 steel production or can be traded in the form of hot briquetted iron (HBI). By decarbonising steel production, GravitHy supports the EU’s pledge of carbon neutrality and responds to a growing demand for low-CO2 steel products.
