Kolkata: ArcelorMittal, the world’s leading steel maker, and India-based consultant Dastur Energy and MN Dastur & Co is set to do research on an industrial-scale solution for carbon capture from blast furnace-based steel making operations, likely helping transform the way steel is produced.
The steelmaker is set to receive the US Department of Energy (DOE)'s funding for the same, ArcelorMittal announced in a social media post.
“Together with Dastur Energy, MN Dastur & Co and ION Clean Energy, we will research an industrial-scale solution for carbon capture from our blast furnace-based steelmaking operations. This FEED study, a crucial first step, will work on designing a carbon capture system capable of capturing 50-70% of CO2 emissions from blast furnace gas,” ArcelorMittal said.
