Tata Steel Signs On for Carbon Capture Project

10/7/2019 - Tata Steel has partnered with Dutch companies Gasunie, EBN and Port of Amsterdam in a feasibility study for a project that could reduce the steelmaker’s CO2 emissions.

The report confirmed there are sufficient opportunities for capturing, storing and reusing CO2 in the North Sea Canal area, which is home to Tata Steel’s integrated steelmaking facility in IJmuiden, the Netherlands. There is also the potential for reducing CO2 emissions by 7.5 million metric tons a year by 2030. Last year Tata Steel announced it aims to be a carbon neutral steelmaker in Europe by 2050.

Tata Steel has more information on the project, known as the Athos Project, here.
