HYBRIT (HYdrogen BReakthrough Ironmaking Technology) is the joint effort of Swedish steel producer SSAB, the energy company Vattenfall and iron ore producer LKAB to replace coking coal, traditionally used in steelmaking, with fossil-free electricity and hydrogen, fully eliminating CO2 emissions throughout the value chain from mining to steel production. By creating the world’s first fossil-free steelmaking technology, their goal is reducing Sweden’s CO2 emissions by 10% and Finland’s by 7%. Thanks to HYBRIT we are now one step closer to fossil free living within one generation: steel is essential for all our lives, but steel production accounts for 7% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Fossil free steel provides with the real possibility of dramatically reducing those emissions and helping achieve the goal of fossil free living within one generation. Launched in 2016 by SSAB, LKAB and Vattenfall, the HYBRIT plan is to have the first steel mill without CO2 emissions by 2025, and to create a completely fossil-free value chain from mine to finished steel, with fossil-free pellets, fossil-free electricity and hydrogen.
