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.

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.
