9/11/2019 - The world’s largest steelmaker has joined a project that will explore carbon capture and storage in Europe.

In a statement, ArcelorMittal said it has signed a memorandum of understanding with international energy firm Equinor to develop value chains related to the process. Equinor is a partner in the Northern Lights project, which aims to sink a carbon sequestration well in the North Sea.
