This is how LKAB takes the lead in the development towards a carbon dioxide-free steel industry

At the end of November, LKAB presented its major investment in the production of iron sponge without any carbon dioxide emissions. What does the investment mean? What new opportunities does it open up for LKAB and the people of Norrbotten?

With perhaps the largest investment in Swedish industry, SEK 400 billion over 20 years, LKAB will switch from today's pellet production to a completely carbon dioxide-free process for the production of iron fungus by 2045. They will save 35,000,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions from customers. This corresponds to one third of Sweden's territorial emissions. At the same time, LKAB will start extracting phosphorus and rare earth metals from its waste streams.
