High-volume Hydrogen for Green Steel


European steel industry working to reduce CO2 output by using hydrogen


  • 1 ton of steel production causes 1.83 tons of CO2 emissions
  • Hydrogen would replace coke (refined coal) as fuel and reducing agent in blast furnace with zero CO2 emissions
  • Replacing coke with hydrogen for steel production would create an enormous need for on-site hydrogen production at steelmaking facilities
  • Investment and operating cost for Zn2H2 hydrogen generator modules will be substantially lower than electrolyzers
  • Highly scalable (just add more generator modules) to utilize whatever power input is available
