Description

HYBRIT is an initiative to revolutionize steelmaking. In 2016, SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall joined forces to create HYBRIT with the aim to replace coal with fossil free electricity and hydrogen. Emissions from steel production will be water instead of carbon dioxide.

The steel industry is one of the highest CO2-emitting industries, accounting for 7 percent of CO2 emissions globally and 10 percent in Sweden. A growing global population and an expanding urbanization are expected to trigger a rise in global steel demand and by 2050. Therefore, SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall created HYBRIT. What makes HYBRIT unique, is that the project aims to solve the root cause of the problem, by replace coking coal, traditionally needed for iron ore-based steel making, with fossil free hydrogen. The result will be the world’s first fossil free steelmaking technology.
