Flanders Commits €400Mn to CCS, CCU Initiative (Int'l Report)
Arcelor Mittal
Date: 2019-03-25
Reporting from Antwerp, the Flemish government reports the approval of a plan to spend €400 million over the next 20 years in an effort to manage carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions and to become climate neutral by 2050. The plan calls for a reduction in fossil fuels consumption while implementing carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon capture and utilization (CCU) of CO2 that is still being produced. Although CCS and CCU technology is not new it is expensive, and there is no related income from CCS for climate protection.

The Flemish government is interested in CCU, an example of which is a pilot project launched in Ghent last week between steel producer Arcelor Mittal and chemicals manufacturer Dow, to split the carbon monoxide and CO₂ from steel production and use the CO₂ to produce bio-ethanol, a renewable energy source.

In another example, energy provider Engie has joined with waste incinerator Indeval to use CO2 capture to produce ethanol in Antwerp. (Source: Various Media, Brussels Times, Apr, 2019)

Europlasma, Arcelor Mittal Cutting Steel's Carbon Footprint (Int'l)
Europlasma,Arcelor Mittal
Date: 2018-02-28
In France, Bordeaux-based Europlasma is reporting its participation in the Reducing Gas Injection Project, led by world's largest steel maker Arcelor Mittal. Europlasma designs and develops innovative plasma solutions for renewable energy production and hazardous waste recovery.

This project aims to validate at a pre-industrial scale, then to deploy at industrial scale, a plasma solution that will slash CO2 emissions by reusing carbon from process gases while reducing CO2 production by 90 to 180 kg per ton of steel and cutting steel blast furnace fossil fuel consumption by reforming and recovering process gases. Based on current European steel production, this plasma solution would prevent the release of 10 to 20 million tpy of CO2.
