TATA STEEL CHOOSES HYDROGEN, KILLING ATHOS PROJECT AT THE SAME TIME

News

TATA Steel announces that it will choose a hydrogen route to become a sustainable steel producer. This news follows the report from RIVM on the pollution in the IJmuiden region from its factories. Now the ATHOS project will be cancelled.

TATA Steel would have been the biggest contributor of CO2 and money for the Athos project. The amount of CO2 that Tata Steel emits, about 6 million tons, was ‘the foundation’ for the project, according to the press release. With Tata Steels decision made last week to opt for the hydrogen route, it makes no sense to let Athos continue in the same form.

The Porthos project in Rotterdam is another case since there is subsidy from the government involved and the locations emitting CO2 are closer to the gas field where the CO2 will be stored. In case of Athos, the factories are relatively far away from an available empty gas field, requiring expensive infrastructure to pump the CO2 around. According to different experts, developments for making steel with hydrogen are much faster and can offer a permanent solution for making the industry more sustainable.
