This is the continuity of China’s efforts during 13th Five-Year Plan period of 2016-2020 when it completed replacing 86 million tonnes per year of old steelmaking capacity with 80 million tonnes per year

The steel sector contributes around 15% of total greenhouse gas emissions in China, which has pledged to bring its carbon emissions to a peak before 2030. About 620 million tonnes of crude steel capacity were conducting or had finished ultra-low emission upgrades by end-February.
