The role of biomass within HYBRIT (Hydrogen Breakthrough Ironmaking Technology)

Published: 12 May 2019

We assess the role of biomass in the HYBRIT value chain (renewable fuel in iron ore pelletising, and carburization of DRI)

Regional biomass market modeling investigating competition, price formation, and effects of external factors

Overall objective of the program HYBRIT RP1 is to explore and assess pathways to fossil-free iron-steel value chains

Focus on replacing carbon as reductant in steel making, with hydrogen produced via fossil-free electricity
