I never knew how steel was produced before now. This is a fascinating look at the zero carbon options https://arstechnica.com/science/2022/06/the-race-to-produce-green-steel
@ash I had someone at work once bring up steel like it was some killer argument to keep digging up coal.
The look on his face when I answered with just "Hydrogen" was classic 😁
@rolaveric yeah I always figured that was the most straightforward option, but I didn't realise it was more complex than just switching out the fuel!
@ash Oh yeah, it's a huge industrial restructure. But it can be done!
And whoever manages to get their green steelworks setup at scale first is going to be making bank from all the orders they'll get as everyone tries to decarbonise.
